Housed in a Grade II* listed building – an unrestored 1719 Huguenot silk merchant’s home which also contains a concealed synagogue dating from 1869 – 19 Princelet Street is rarely open to the public. Timed to coincide with Refugee Week, these open daysgive visitors a chance to explore London’s ‘museum of conscience’, where displays address themes of immigration and diversity. Visitors will be able to see the exhibition ‘Leave to Remain’ – a show by three contemporary refugee artists, looking at asylum in Britain – as well as ‘Suitcases and Sanctuary’, an exhibition made by children exploring the refugee experience in Spitalfields from French Huguenot, Irish, Jewish, Afro-Caribbean, Somali and Bangladeshi viewpoints. The museum is family-friendly and provides an activity trail for children.
