Overview

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

A very interesting little museum in a beautiful old building with a nice outdoor garden area. Yes, it's military, but everyone will find something which interests them inside. Like most military museums this one has plenty of hidden gems, but needs support or we risk...More

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.
