Overview
More
St Johns House, a Jacobean Mansion located in Warwick, has a history spanning almost 900 years. The land on which the current building now 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 in the early 20th century. Latterly the building was bought by Warwickshire County Council and turned into a Museum, which was opened to the public in 1960. Please note, from April 1st 2017 the Museum will not be available for public visits, but by pre-arranged schools and groups only. The Museum will be open to the general public on Heritage Open Weekends. On the first floor of the house is The Royal Warwickshire Regiment of Fusiliers Museum, visit their website for opening hour details

The house is quite good, but it houses a museum for the Warwick Fusiliers. Good memorial to the various wars and battles. Many medals on display.

You can tour some of the grounds but the municipal museum has closed as of April 2017. The house is attractive to view in and of itself and the grounds worth a brief stroll.

Great selection of interesting artefacts for both young & old. Regimental models, medals & dressing up as a soldier upstairs, helpful staff. We enjoyed our visit there, would recommend to anyone looking for somewhere different to go to.

This small museum is free and quite close to the railway station. It's interesting if you like everything which is related to the army (detailed exposition of ancient flags and army uniforms). I particularly enjoyed the exhibition on WWI in Warwickshire and the room which...More

Interesting museum as regards the ways of old schools and toys. Bit of fashion too and an old kitchen set up at the back
