We are the Museum of the Order of St John

Museum Museum

The Museum Galleries tell the story of the Order of St John – from its origins in eleventh-century Jerusalem, through to its role today with St John Ambulance and the St John Eye Hospital in Jerusalem. To see the spectacular historic interiors of St John’s Gate, the Priory Church and twelfth-century crypt visitors can attend one of our guided tours.
