Museum of the Order of St JohnThis 16th century gatehouse was formerly the southern entrance to the Priory of the Medieval Order of St John and contains furniture, painting, silver, coins and medals relating to the Knights Hospitaller's history. The 12th century Norman Crypt and the Grand Priory Church can be seen on the guided tour. Armour, manuscripts and religious art are among the treasures on display in the museum. Among the highlights are a Flemish altarpiece that stood in the Priory church, a magnificent missal from the island of Rhodes, a cannon given to the Knights by Henry VIII, outstanding Maltese silver, and David Bomberg's painting of the Jerusalem Hospital. The museum underwent a £3.7 million refurbishment programme which concluded in late 2010. An interactive gallery uses multimedia exhibits to tell the story of the St John's Ambulance, which was founded by the British Order of St John in the 19th century.
