St John’s House Museum – Planning your Visit

Housed in a Jacobean mansion, St John’s Museum showcases the social history collections. Galleries include a Victorian Kitchen and Schoolroom (used by local school children during term time for activities and learning sessions), displays on childhood, toys and games, costume and an under 5s discovery room. St John’s also has lovely formal gardens where you can sit and enjoy a picnic. On the first floor of the house is The Royal Warwickshire Regiment of Fusiliers Museum www.warwickfusiliers.co.uk.
