  • St. john’s is worth a visit for the church alone. add in a great historic schoolhouse and it should be on your to do list. TIP: time visit with opening times of museum by checking website  more »
  • St. John's Church is amazing. Spiritual and historic. Easily overlooked but a visit provides an insight into many phases of Canberra's history. A most rewarding and stimulating visit. recommended.  more »

The Museum consists of the original schoolroom and five other rooms used as a home for the school Master and his family. In addition to the furnishings and artefacts of the school and the schoolhouse, the Museum has a collection of photographs on display of Canberra in the 19th and early 20th centuries and a collection of objects relating to the history of St John's Church and other churches of the district.
