Housed in a Jacobean mansion, St John's Museum showcases the social history collections. Galleries include a Victorian Kitchen and Schoolroom (used by local school children during term time for activities and learning sessions), displays on childhood, toys and games, costume and an under 5s discovery room. St John's also has lovely formal gardens where you can sit and enjoy a picnic. On the first floor of the house is The Royal Warwickshire Regiment of Fusiliers Museum

I visited here with a group of 10-13 year olds and was very impressed. The museum isn't very big, but there is so much to see and do. With a lot of the exhibits being interactive it's also fantastic for children who can really get involved and learn. Living near by I drive past this most days, but it was... More

I love museums like this, beautiful little exhibitions focusing on one or two areas. We didn't get there in time to see all the military exhibits but the Victorian areas were really interesting.

To be fair It was only very good as it was small and like many other museums It was well laid out and I think would be excellent for children especially. It is worth listening to the log book readings on the head sets

First of all its free! The building on first entry is beautiful, what a find! Once through the door you are greeted by the staff who inform you of the way around the museum. On the ground floor it is full of historical memorabilia of Warwick and the surrounding areas and a timeline of artefacts throughout the ages. On the... More

Rather ordinary in many ways.The schoolroom and kitchen,to an antiques dealer like myself,are humdrum,but maybe not to the young! The military stuff upstairs is excellent,but rather focussed. The walled garden has little in it,but is a peaceful oasis.
