Event:
The Huguenot Museum is the only museum dedicated to the Huguenot people in the UK. They left France in the 17th and 18th Century due to religious persecution and settled in England. The museum was opened by Princess Alexandra and resides in the former French Hospital. It is home to the history of 250,000 protestants, paintings, engravings, furniture, silverware, memorabilia and even a Huguenot bible that was hidden by being baked in a loaf of bread. During Heritage Open Day, the museum is offering free entry to the public. So grab the family and make a day trip to heart of historic Rochester in Kent.
