Let St John’s Gate capture your imagination

Previously shortlisted for Kids in Museums’ Family Friendly Museum Award, we’re worth exploring!

Visiting us

We’re open!

We are delighted to announce that the Museum galleries are now open for you to explore from 10am to 5pm Thursday – Saturday.

Our gallery trails have been  refreshed and we have lots of colouring and activity sheets to be enjoyed. If you would like to download a copy at home before you visit, please scroll to the bottom of the page where you will find them all available.

During school holidays, we offer an exciting programme of family activities including art and craft workshops and regular storytelling sessions.

Toilets and baby-changing facilities are available on site. We aim to make our museum and family activities accessible to everyone, but if you have any questions please contact us: museum@sja.org.uk / 020 7324 4005

We look forward to seeing you soon!
