Welcome to the Huguenot Museum
The German Huguenot Museum
The German Huguenot Museum which was founded in 1980 is housed in a former tobacco factory in the Huguenot town of Bad Karlshafen. Exhibits relating to the history of the Huguenots are displayed on three floors.
The society responsible for the museum is the Verein Hugenotten-Museum Bad Karlshafen e.V. It receives support from the German Huguenot Society and the town of Bad Karlshafen.
You, too, can help the society to fulfill its tasks by becoming a member.
Special exhibitions, author's readings and lectures are held on the ground floor, educational activities also. For example, scenes from Huguenot history can be performed in this area.
The first floor deals with the history of the Reformed Protestants in France - called Huguenots - in particular their suffering and persecution as a minority in Catholic France.
The settlement and integration of the Huguenots who fled from France to the German territories are the themes treated here, with an emphasis on Brandenburg, Prussia, Hesse-Kassel and Franconia.
