Museum of Immigration and Diversity

19 Princelet Street
E1 6QH
020 7247 5352


The exhibition "Suitcases and Sanctuary", made largely by local schoolchildren, is a genuinely innovative celebration of immigration housed in a magical Grade II* listed building that combines a remarkable unrestored 1719 Huguenot master silk weaver's house with a rare Victorian synagogue illuminated by a pastel coloured stained glass ceiling. The complementary exhibition "Leave to Remain" by 3 refugee artists takes a wry look at asylum in today's Britain. Open by appointment only. There is no charge, but donations are encouraged. To arrange a visit outside scheduled open days, 14 days written notice is normally requested. Priority is given to educational and community groups, to non-profit making bodies and to bona fide scholars.
