St John’s Museum

Visit the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers Museum (Royal Warwickshire) which tells the story of over 300 years of history of the County Regiment, from its raising in 1674 to the Fusiliers of today.

Greeted by a soldier of 1744 the story of the “Warwickshire Lads”, from Private to Field Marshal, is revealed through an exciting mixture of real objects and interactives. Lots to do for all the family – try on uniforms (a great photo opportunity!) and experience night vision. Discover stories about Hannah Snell, a female soldier; and the Regimental mascot, Bobby the antelope. Find out about the Regiments famous sons, notably Field Marshals Montgomery and Slim. See displays about both World Wars. Look at the Bairnsfather cartoons, listen to veterans’ experiences of D-Day and marvel at the medals.

The museum is situated in a 17th century Grade I listed house, which is regarded as one of the most important buildings in Warwick. Visitors can also relax in the peaceful garden.

The museum has an exciting programme of family events throughout the year.

We can help with researching your family history about soldiers who served in the Royal Warwickshire Regiment.

We can offer talks to outside organisations or provide a guided tour for groups – pre-booking is essential for both services.
