Wow , what a great recreation of the tough times steering national fortunes in WW2. In fact a lot of what is on display is as it was, but in some cases recreated using contemporary materials. The Churchill Museum risks being a tad sycophantic but carries it off well given inclusion of critical commentary on his foibles. The scenes from his funeral in 1965 are very moving. It is amazing to see the reality of such important events, including the pokey little radio room Churchill used for transatlantic radio calls to Roosevelt. Indeed quotes on display about the affection these two clearly underscores the collective efforts they put in. These war rooms are a must see if you appreciate the events of WW 2, they are one of the most evocative things we have seen, and we have travelled and seen a lot. BTW - grab a cup of Dig For Victory soup in the cafe - very tasty and adds to the experience all round.

You are there during World War II, as Churchill guides the United Kingdom through the war's darkest hours. The inside stories of Churchill's life, diplomacy, eating and drinking and smoking are all on display

Very interesting, well presented and a great insight into the life and work of one of the most influential people this country has ever honored.
The audio tour was very easy to use, and made the whole experience in my opinion very enjoyable.
Well done to all.
