The Huguenot Museum is located in the heart of historic Rochester in Kent and we are easily accessed by road, rail, bus or foot.

The Huguenot Museum is now closed. We are sorry to announce that the Museum is closing temporarily for the winter due to a shortage of funding.  Please see a statement on the Museum’s future here

Thank you to all our visitors and supporters, everyone who has given a talk or run a workshop, all our amazing staff and volunteers, and all of those who have enthusiastically take part in creating the Huguenot Museum and telling their stories. We hope we will be able to come together in 2022 to open the doors again.

Staying safe when you visit

Please wear a mask when you visit to protect our staff, volunteers and fellow visitors, unless you are exempt. We are maintaining the distancing and hygiene measures introduced to the Museum last year and will ask you to use the NHS app or leave your contact details so that we can support Track and Trace. Please read this information in advance of your visit here.

Family History

For the price of your entrance ticket, we offer a preliminary check into your family history to see if you may be of Huguenot descent. We will not be offering face to face consultations but our Family History volunteers are working remotely so if you are interested in pursuing your family history further, please take a look at our Family History Service here.
