Overview

In 1946 it was at Westminster College that Winston Churchill delivered one of the most significant speeches of his long and illustrious career. That address, formally entitled, The Sinews of Peace, but best known for that evocative phrase, An Iron Curtain has descended across the Continent, effectively marked the beginning of the Cold War and linked, forever, Fulton and Westminster College with Winston Churchill.In the 1960s Westminster College set out to mark what would be the 40th anniversary of Churchill's visit. After due consideration to traditional modes of commemoration, Westminster College settled on the rather more ambitious notion of moving a Christopher Wren designed Church from London. This Church, St. Mary the Virgin Aldermanbury, had stood in London since 1677 when it replaced an earlier structure that had sat on the same site since the 12th century. This magnificent building, badly damaged during the London Blitz, was moved stone by stone to Westminster's campus and rebuilt to Wren's original specifications.Beneath this Church is the National Churchill Museum itself which through the imaginative and innovative use of technology bring to life the story of Winston Churchill and the world he knew. Recently rebuilt form the ground up the new displays and the permanent exhibition, together with host of associated historical and cultural activities that support it was recognized the by the United States Congress as America's permanent tribute to this great man and formally recognized as America's National Churchill Museum.

This is a fascinating place and probably, no doubt has the most comprehensive Winston Churchill collection on North America. The bombed out church was rebuilt beautifully. Great history lives here. The Westminster College campus is beautiful.

It's an odd name, and unless you happen to remember that Churchill coined the phrase "iron curtain" in a speech at Westminster College in Fulton, MO (thanks to Harry Truman's tie to the college president), you'll wonder what in the world a museum to Churchill...More

Even if you’re a bit of a Churchill buff, as I am, you probably haven’t seen the Great Man’s draft of his Iron Curtain speech, constructed in poetic form, with his inserts and deletions, which is framed on all the walls in one gallery. Then,...More

There is a lot of standing and reading in the museum, so it can be tiring, but it is worth it. There are several short films that give a break from standing. There are very few artifacts from Churchill's life, which would have made it...More

Really interesting and well presented museum with a combination of documents, photos and film. Very good on the 1946 speech but also on other aspects of Churchill's life. And a reconstructed Wren church. Well worth seeking out

All depends. An hour to three is good depending on what you read or watch. Then enjoy the old church above.
