Exhibitions of the Huguenot museum
Over the coming years, internal renovation and thus restructuring of the permanent exhibition are planned. The enlarged exhibition area will then also offer space for special exhibitions in an area of approx. 400 m². You can look forward to many further insights into the topic of “Huguenots in Berlin and Brandenburg” and beyond.
After the Great Elector Friedrich Wilhelm von Brandenburg issued the Edict of Potsdam in 1685, around 20,000 French religious refugees found asylum in Berlin and the Margraviate of Brandenburg. Their story is told in Berlin’s Huguenot Museum on the basis of documents, paintings, engravings, books, manuscripts and medals. Together with the archives of the French Church and the historic library, Berlin’s Huguenot Museum is located in the tower extension of the French Cathedral in Gendarmenmarkt. The body responsible for the museum is the consistory of the French Church in Berlin.
