Easy parking on street in front of the museum, which is currently closed for renovation. Check out the Berlin Wall section, then be sure to cross the street and go on campus to see the gym where Winston Churchill gave the speech.

The museum is well done and informative. The church above is incredibly historic (designed by Wren, built with stones from a medieval church with ties to Merton and Shakespeare) and well restored. The section of the Berlin Wall is cool too. Any of the above on its own would be worth the detour. Combined makes it a must stop.

National Churchill Museum and Berlin Wall Pieces

In the small college town of Fulton, MO you will find the Winston Churchill Museum. It's a small museum dedicated to the life of Sir Winston Churchill that was built after he gave his legendary "Iron Curtain" speech at Westminster College. The museum is underneath the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury, a 12th century church from the middle of London, redesigned by Sir Christopher Wren in 1677, that was relocated to Fulton.

Outside of the museum are pieces of the Berlin Wall and a large bust of Churchill.
