Churchill and Blenheim Palace

Winston Churchill once quipped, "At Blenheim I took two very important decisions: to be born and to marry. I am happily content with the decisions I took on both those occasions."

This special exhibition, featuring objects from the collection of America’s National Churchill Museum and select loans from private collections, will explore Churchill's enduring admiration for, and relationship to Blenheim Palace, the ancestral home of John Churchill, the 1st Duke of Marlborough and one of the grandest homes in England.

This exhibition is organized in conjunction with Churchill 2024, a global commemoration of the 150th anniversary of Churchill’s birth and is made possible by the Anson Cutts Fund for America’s National Churchill Museum.


“Leave the past to history especially as I propose to write that history myself.”

Winston S. Churchill
