Sherborne Museum is housed in what used to be the gatehouse and almonry of the monastery once associated with the Abbey.

St. Johns Almshouse
The picturesque Almshouse was built in the 15th Century for “12 poor men and 4 poor women” and is now home to 18 elderly residents. Of particular interest are the remarkable 15th century Triptych; copies of the illuminated Royal Licence and Foundation Deed; an original letter dated 1594 from Sir Walter Raleigh to the Almshouse Master.
