Churchill Museum and Cabinet War Rooms

The Churchill Museum is divided into five chapters, spanning all ninety years of Churchill's life.


 
Shortly after becoming Prime Minister in May 1940, Winston Churchill visited the Cabinet War Rooms to see for himself what preparations had been made to allow him and his War Cabinet to continue working throughout the expected air raids on London. It was there, in the underground Cabinet Room, he announced 'This is the room from which I will direct the war'.

The Cabinet War Rooms house the first national museum dedicated to Winston Churchill. Using cutting edge technology and a mixture of media displays, the undeniably exciting story of this historical figure is brought to life. Visitors can explore the complex nature of his life, long political career and also investigate the private man, his successes and failures.

Most notable among the exhibits is the Lifeline, a fifteen metre-long interactive table, which dominates the Churchill Museum space. By using a simple touch-strip, visitors can access information from a computerised ‘filing cabinet’ of Churchill’s life, divided into years, months, weeks and even days. The Lifeline also refers to major national and world events in order to give a sense of the times in which Churchill lived.
