Consisting of two sites in Clerkenwell, the Museum of the Order of St. John tells the centuries-old story of the order, first established in Jerusalem during the Crusades. The history lesson begins at St John's Gate, which was built in 1504 as an entrance to the Priory of the Knights of St. John and now houses a collection of paintings, furniture, armor, rare manuscripts, and books relating to the knights. Across from the gate, the Priory Church of St. John and its 12th-century crypt contain exhibits on the history of the order and an interactive display on St. John's Ambulance.
