POP @ Huguenot Museum
POP project team had a recent research visit to the Huguenot Museum in Rochester http://huguenotmuseum.org/.
Learning officer Amy Dimmock who introduced us to the museum and collection kindly welcomed us. Amy explained the heritage of the Huguenots as being the first recognised people to be called ‘refugees’ and discussed how materials, skills and technology brought by the Huguenot people began to absorb into British culture.
We also learnt how the recently opened museum had structured the interpretation in layers of accessibility using varying scaled text font and large graphic image displays.
There was much to be inspired by from the visit and we thank the Huguenot Museum for their hospitality.
