Sadly I only had a short time due to visiting after a day at work and close to closing time. What I did manage to see was excellent and I will return for a longer look next time I am in the area. Very atmospheric building, definitely worth a visit.

They pack a heck of a lot of history into St. John's House. The Royal Fusiliers museum upstairs offers more than just a pile of weapons and pictures of Monty. Of course, these are there, but much more is on offer. Try dressing up in military clothing, look at various centuries' memorabilia. The staff are thrilled to tell stories to... More

The children were bored and fancied something local. We parked in a council car park and walked 5 mins through to the museum. A free museum with option obviously for donations. Saw an old school room - old(er) items dolls clothing toys even found an old Brownie Uniform from the 70's. Upstairs to the War remembrance - a little history... More

Had a lovely time wandering around St John's Museum. It was very interesting to see and read all about the local history and catch up on some long lost traditions and toys.

This is a great place to go, the children can actually do things and not just colouring like some places you go. Even young children can play with old fashioned (or things their parents used to have!!) toys and games. It is accessible from the park car park and if you go in or out that way you can play... More

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... More

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
