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.

  • A well-kept and visually dazzling museum. Great linear account of Churchill's life and events surrounding it. The church is beautiful.
  • Very nice museum. Staff is friendly. Our daughter is doing a project on the Berlin Wall. The visit to the museum was very helpful and informative. Nice to see such a large section of the wall.
  • This was a random, quick stop on a long trip, but I'm glad we did; even without going into the museum, there was plenty to see. The pieces of the Berlin Wall were awesome to see; I remember when it was pulled down, and I loved being able to tell my kids about it with the physical pieces right there.
  • An amazing, but small museum. Unfortunately, some of the interactive items are broken. Fortunately, they are undergoing a facelift. Still worth seeing!
  • So many details, so much information, good for adults and children! We should never forget what mankind has gone through that we might not repeat the past.
