The Museum is situated in an impressive building in the centre of Rochester, which also houses the tourist information office and an art gallery and café.
The actual Huguenot Museum is on the fist and second floor. It is beautifully and lovingly presented and houses not only an outline history of the Huguenots but also hosts changing exhibitions. There is a lift for people that find stairs challenging.
On one of the days that I went, there were activities for families and children were being encouraged to be creative.
The main focus of my visit was to use the research facilities which are housed is a separate room just off the main entry section.
I spent around 4 hours with a very helpful researcher,looking at various aspects of my family history.Suffice it to say that we did not get back any further than the 1700s- which fell short of my objective.
However,the research experience was excellent and well to be recommended.
