Westminster Gymnasium


To honor Churchill’s speech at Westerminster Gymnasium, the National Churchill Museum was built as a lasting legacy. The museum is located underneath the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury. Designed in the 16th century by Sir Christopher Wren, the church originally stood in London, England. It is said that famed playwright Sir William Shakespeare and noted English poet John Milton were members of the congregation. The World War II ruins of the church were brought to the college and resurrected in 1966. Many of the construction workers and craftsmen were from the local community.
