ST. JOHN'S HOUSE (Warwick) - jonjon's official review
Oct 2019
You'll also find the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers Museum on its first floor.

THE HOUSE. This is a heritage house fitted with a regiment museum upstairs.

Built late 1660s.

GROUND FLOOR. The house’s history is squashed into two display boards and an audio track. You’ll find these besides the main entrance.

If you’re curious enough, you’ll find an inconspicuous corridor besides the boards. It leads to a recreated Victorian classroom and another room with a collection of toys.

FIRST FLOOR. Here you’ll find the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers Museum. Heroic tales and personal life stories. Very local history.

LOCATION. A seven minute walk from Warwick Station. Exit the station and walk south along Station Road. Turn right into A429 and walk all along - the house is right across the street.

FUN FACT. “Fusil” is a late 17th century firearm. The regiment was named by King James II.

Fun escape room experience
Nov 2019 • Friends
We took part in the escape room that was set up within part of the museum - so the room contained museum exhibits as well as clues to the escape. I'm led to believe that this was the first time that they had run the escape room experience (and it may be run again in the New Year). The experience was well thought through although some of the clues were a little vague. We did manage to escape and it was an enjoyable experience suitable for all the family.

Small but well worth the visit
Sep 2019
It is a small display floor but for such a small area it has a lot of treasure. The staff/volunteers are wonderful and know their history (which sadly does not happen at a lot of museums).

Stricked school
Sep 2019 • Family
I seen that the venue was part of the heritage open weekend and had a victorian school session. I booked my A.S.D son and i onto the workshop and off we went. Lovely people in costume. A house which was a museum and an aray of items to see. My son enjoyed the school lesson and i loved the fact he was able to engage with the three r's. We then had a wonder around and had a picnic in the garden. A real hidden gem. Reccomend to all! A variety of history, school, home, war and all inbetween.

Paranormal night
Sep 2019 • Friends
Visited on Friday 13th for a paranormal night. Parking was at a premium on site, although you can park near by on a pay and display car park.
We were limited to the rooms we were allowed to use, the kitchen, school room, attic and cellar. There were displays in the kitchen and school room which were interesting.
The exterior of the house was lovely with tidy gardens.
I would probably visit again during the day in the hope of seeing more of the property.

Engaging museum
Apr 2019 • Friends
A very short walk from the centre of Warwick town. Mainly displays of the Victorian era which includes a school room. Well worth a visit. Quite compact so about one hour us all the time you need.
