See how things were above and below stairs - very authentic I would think - although I wasn't around at the time

A wide variety of exhibits including when we were there 1st WW and toys. Lots of local interest and well worth a visit. Free entry.

We went here for a few hours today and it was great! The plan had been to visit the museum in the market square but it was closed (maybe due to mop) so we had a walk down to here instead and im glad we did! Easily accessed via st Nics park and a short walk from the main town... More

We stumbled across this museum and were very glad we did! A beautiful building with lots of history inside. A lovely place to visit! We would definitely recommend a visit if you have a spare few hours. All for free!

I just came across this museum while walking from the railway station to the town. Interesting exhibits inside, they have the nameplate of a Patriot Locomotive, "The Royal Warwickshire Regiment" on display at the top of the stairs!

It was a real joy to feel the buzz and enthusiasm at St Johns. Although we only had a short time, we were lucky enough to arrive as a first world war enactment was drawing to a close. We were absolutely delighted with the old schoolroom which we thought was extremely well represented. We would have loved to see more... More

In Aug 2014 it was geared up to WW1 commemorations. The exhibits were good and guides very helpful. Not good for small children but interesting for mature visitors.

we went here as part of a private party to preview the Warwickshire at War exhibition which is now on depicting a timeline of events which took place 100 years ago as unassuming local folk became embrioled in the monsterous killing machine which was later referred to as WW1. It's a smallish exhibition but very well conceived and will change... More

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
