This 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 knight'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. An interactive gallery uses multimedia exhibits to tell the story of St John's Ambulance, founded by the British Order of St John in 19th century.
