Winston Churchill's Visit to Fulton, Missouri
Traveling Trunk Program

What is a Traveling Trunk?
America's National Churchill Museum's traveling trunks are mini-museums, bringing a little bit of history to your classroom, scout troop, or other organization. Each trunk contains a variety of "hands-on" objects: clothing, photographs, objects, books, audio tapes, activity sheets, and a teacher handbook. Trunks are aligned with the Missouri and national learning standards. They are appropriate for all ages.
