History of the Churchill Museum War Rooms
The Churchill War Rooms, located by St James's Park, is arguably one of the most historically important sites in the modern era. The historic rooms were created in 1938, as the underground storage areas of the Office of Works Building in Whitehall were converted to house the central core of government and to become a military information centre, serving the Prime Minister and the Chiefs of Staff of the air, naval and land forces. Intended as a temporary site, the rooms became operational on 27 August 1939, a week before the German invasion of Poland and Britain's declaration of war. This 'temporary' but timely measure served as the central shelter for government and military strategists for the next six years.
The award winning Churchill Museum, opened in 2005, uses cutting-edge technology and multimedia displays to bring the exciting story of Winston Churchill to life. From Churchill’s childhood to his ‘finest hour’ and later years, visitors not only learn more about his political exploits but also his private life, successes and failures.
Housed within the Museum, admission to the Churchill Museum is included with tickets to the Churchill War Rooms.
