The National Churchill Museum, on the campus of Westminster College, commemorates the life, times, and distinguished career of Sir Winston Churchill. Located on the site of his Iron Curtain Speech.

Enter the magnificent Christopher Wren-designed Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury. Dating back to the 17th Century, the Church was painstakingly moved from London to Fulton and lovingly reconstructed, stone-by-stone, on the Westminster College campus. Featuring a hand crafted tracker organ and an original Wren pulpit, the Church now stands exactly as Wren's design envisaged in 1677.

Walk through the sculpture Breakthrough, created from eight sections of the actual Berlin Wall by celebrated artist Edwina Sandys, Churchill's granddaughter.

Enter the historic Gymnasium where Churchill delivered his famous Iron Curtain speech, its structure frozen in time waiting for you to walk into the past.

See Franta Belsky's magnificent 1964 bronze sculpture, Churchill.

  • Very informative. Any lover of history should visit for this unique perspective on WW2. The church is such a fascinating part of history it's worth the trip. You would have to travel to Europe to find a building this old and steeped with history.
  • This museum has an amazing wealth of history on the life of Sir Winston Churchill and the world politics of his time. The exhibits are a bit lengthy, but the wealth of knowledge presented to you is well worth it. I would definitely consider coming again!
