Attraction details
Owner description: 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

Took part in a ghost hunt here last night, and all I can say is woah!! It was a phenomenal place. I dont know anything about the history of the building, or the hospital that stood on the same ground, but found out all sorts communicating with the spirits (whether you believe or not). I could go through them all now, but I would recommend looking into it and seeing for yourself.

FYI the fee I paid to go was for the ghost hunt.

Stopped for refreshment in the gardens whilst visiting friends and found it a bit run down. The building is lovely and there is a small exhibition area with rather interesting display of old school life and toys. Staff are pleasant but the place is a bit dead otherwise.

My wife and I had walked past this building on many occasions, we had even strolled around the grounds. This time we decided to have a look round the museum. Wow I'm glad we did, we spent 2 enjoyable hours wandering around. A most interesting and eye opening afternoon. I would recommend anybody to visit

The house looks great and promising, but inside the museum is a bit randomly organised. Somewhat entertaining for kids and at least it is free.

St.John's Museum is an intimate little gem at the bottom of the lovely Smith Street, Warwick, very child friendly, quick to "cover" but also worth a long, detailed look upstairs. The Victorian classroom alone makes it worth a visit - and it's free!
