Where are we going today?
The National Churchill Museum is located on the Westminster College campus in Fulton, Missouri, and is a great way for kids to learn first hand about the life and times of Sir Winston Churchill - one of the world's most memorable political leaders.
In fact, the location of the museum is the same place where he made that famous "Iron Curtain" speech. See, you're already learning!
The National Churchill Museum is filled with amazing artifacts and information on the history of Churchill, with several exhibits that change every year. They also have a permanent exhibition so you can re-live the amazing life of an amazing man every time you visit!
They are a great way for kids to be inspired by his experiences and leadership qualities, and really feel what life during his time would have been like.
Kids can experience the sounds and sights of life in a trench during WWI, and they can hear and see the effects of the Blitz among a dazzling light and sound show.
Ever wanted to be a spy? You can at the National Churchill Museum! Spend some time deciphering WWII secret codes, and finding clues from the secrets locked deep within the Cold War briefcase.
If you fancy a rest, you can just sit back in an overstuffed chair and listen to the tales of Churchill's wisdom and wit!
The undercroft of this beautiful and historic Wren church is a museum filled with a priceless treasury of artifacts and information relating to the life and times of Sir Winston Churchill.
So much better than reading a book about this great man - it's a museum where kids become PART of history themselves!
