St John’s House Museum

St Johns House, a Jacobean mansion located in Warwick, has a history spanning almost 900 years. The land on which it stands was originally used as a hospital in the 12th century. The current house has been used as a private residence, a school and administrative offices of the War Department.

Latterly the building was bought by Warwickshire County Council and turned into a museum, which opened to the public in 1960.

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, costumes and an under fives discovery room. There are also lovely gardens where you can sit and enjoy a picnic.

On the first floor of the house is The Royal Warwickshire Regiment of Fusiliers Museum.
