Museum of Immigration & Diversity
Lonely Planet review for Museum of Immigration & Diversity
This unique Huguenot town house was built in 1719 and housed a prosperous family of weavers, before becoming home to waves of immigrants including Polish, Irish and Jewish families, the last of which built a synagogue in the back garden in 1869. In keeping with the house’s multicultural past, it now houses a Museum of Immigration & Diversity, whose carefully considered exhibits are aimed at both adults and children. Unfortunately the house is in urgent need of repair and as such opens only infrequently (usually no more than a dozen times a year). Check the website for dates.
