About the Collection

The collection of America's National Churchill Museum contains more than 10,000 objects. Even before the official opening in 1969, members of the Churchill family and the collectors around the world responded with donations. The museum has always been dedicated to the current best practices in collecting and preserving the collection.

The Museum's vaults currently house over 200 linear feet of archives and personal papers. These holdings contain personal Churchill correspondence, original Churchill paintings, and one of the largest privately owned collections of Churchilliana.

If you have a potential donation or research question, please contact the Chief Curator at 573-592-5233.
