We had long heard of Winston Churchill's Iron Curtain speech in Fulton and had an inkling that Harry Truman had something to do with the venue. As with an earlier reviewer, we expected to stop for a few minutes and spent two hours. Besides the speech itself, the museum covers Sir Winston's pedigree, several careers, and the period of time through which he lived, especially World War II. The displays are quite imaginative, well-conceived, and interactive (without being gimmicky). The Church of St Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury -- built in the 12th century, rebuilt in the 17th century by Christopher Wrenn, destroyed in the blitz during World War II, and reconstructed in Fulton in the 1960s -- is an unexpected plus. And, yes, President Truman was instrumental in bringing the (former) Prime Minister to Missouri. Certainly worth a stop -- or a detour.
