About The Collections
|The National Churchill Museum's collections reflect it's proud and innovative past. Once Westminster College settled on a suitable memorial to Winston Churchill's historic 1946 visit the public responded with vast donations. The Winston Churchill Memorial & Library was not opened until 1969; however, the institution began collecting in 1965. The museum has always been dedicated to the current Best Practices in collecting. With our new National Designation the museum is collecting more pro-actively than ever. We believe our collections will be a resource for generations to come. It was indeed these resources which fueled the multi-million dollar renovation in 2006.||See our exciting most recent addition to the collections.|
Our Museum's vaults currently house over 10,000 objects and over 200 linear feet of archives and personal papers. This holding boasts several pieces of personal Churchill correspondence, original Churchill paintings, and one of the largest privately owned collections of Churchilliana.
