Free entry to this wonderful Warwick museum. Covering 2 floors, the first tells all about the history of this old house and has areas where young children can play and also see toys of yesteryear. On the 2nd floor was all military information and exhibits including masses of medals relating to the Warwickshire regiments over the centuries. Plus a gentleman... More

This is a compact but interesting museum. Set in a Tudor mansion a short walk from Warwick's historic town centre, a range of exhibits chart life in the area throughout history, but most from Shakespearian times. Well suited to visits by children, St John's House is a nice counterpoint to the theme park of Warwick Castle, offing some actual reflections... More

A very well thought out & presented small museum whose ethos is clearly slanted towards education: to be honest a more interesting visit than the one in the Market Square

Gorgeous Jacobean house, lovely, lovely gardens for picnics, an hour is more than enough in the house but you can and I did while away the whole day in the gardens. Good for couples I would say.

Lots of local and military history to be found in this historical building, worth a visit and it’s free to look round with an option to give a donation.

The was a Victorian classroom and lots of wooden toys that children can explore and play with. Upstairs is a military museum which was really... More
