Museum opening times slashed following budget cuts

BUDGET cuts have prompted changes to the opening of St John’s House Museum in Warwick.

Heritage and Culture Warwickshire – which currently occupy the ground floor of St John’s House – will only be welcoming schools and visitors to their exhibitions by prior appointment.

Emma Andrews from Heritage and Culture Warwickshire said: “The majority of our visitors to St John’s House Museum have always been school groups, and we will continue to offer this popular programme alongside opportunities for the public to visit the ground floor of this wonderful building during Heritage Open Weekends.

“Unfortunately due to budget cuts, we have had to review access to the building to our general visitors.”

But the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers museum on the first floor will be maintaining its current opening hours – 10am to 5pm Monday to Saturday – exhibitions and events.
