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.

One would not think a museum of this caliber would be located in a small college town of Fulton, Mo, especially built atop the renovated church which was relocated from London, England. Stop. Its well worth the short detour off I-70.

Very interesting exhibit. Three components make up this worthwhile adventure. The museum itself, which chronicles Churchill’s life and displays his unique paintings; remnants of the Berlin Wall gracing the grounds next to the museum; and the reconstruction of Christopher Wren’s Church of St. Mary the...More

While in town for business went by the Churchill museum and toured the historical facts about Churchill's visit to Missouri. Very interesting and enjoyable. After viewing the museum we went upstairs and toured the church.

A Smithsonian Museum in Central MO, which is a wonderful insight into Winston Churchill. Never seen a better Churchiil Museum of his life other than in England. The church above the Museum was imported from England after a fire.

There is sufficient parking, especially during non-college session times. Though I don't recall RV designated parking, you should be able to find a spot nearby.

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