This is a great little museum and well worth a visit.
The guide was very informative and said almshouse was likely to have been the forerunner to the Royal Hospital at Chelsea.
It was good to see that the almshouses are still in use.
Really surprising that so many interesting features lie behind the modest facade. Delightful early 17th century courtyard built from masonry from the Dominican priory plus the Hospitallers’ chapel and information about the care they provided. All for a requested donation.
This museum is only open on two days of the week, Wednesdays and Saturdays, so do check before you try to visit. What an absolute gem of a place! This is the Dominican monastery, home to the Crusdaders of the Order of St. John. You...More

I visited St John Medieval Museum and Coningsby Hospital last week with my mum and we loved it. The volunteers were very helpful and full of interesting knowledge about how St Johns ambulance was formed. The displays were amazing and the chapel was beautiful.
