Discover 400 years of Warwick’s great history
Explore the wonders of a Jacobean mansion, and learn about the Royal Warwickshire Fusiliers.
St. John’s House Museum is one of Warwick’s most illustrious historic sites. A Jacobean mansion built on a 12th century monastery, the stone-clad beauty has been used as a house, an infirmary and even a school. Little wonder that it has survived to become a beacon of Warwick’s social past, a role it has taken on since the 1960s.
Inside the museum you can find all sorts of fascinating objects, from toys and clothes to games and kitchen utensils. There’s a special ‘discovery room’ for under-fives, and a formal garden perfect for mid-meander picnics. On the first floor is a museum dedicated to the Royal Warwickshire Fusiliers – over 300 years old and going strong.
