Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Housed in a Grade II* listed building, an unrestored 1719 Huguenot silk merchant’s home which also contains a concealed synagogue dating from 1869, the Museum of Immigration and Diversity is London’s ‘museum of conscience’. Suitcases and Sanctuary, an exhibition made by children, explores the refugee experience in Spitalfields, from French Huguenot, Irish, Jewish, Afro-Caribbean, Somali and Bangladeshi viewpoints. The museum is only open to the public a few times a year, although it’s sometimes possible to arrange group visits one month in advance.
