Their Finest Hours: Winston Churchill & The Queen Mary Exhibition

 

Few public figures have had more influence on modern political and social life than former British Prime Minister, Winston Spencer-Churchill.

The exhibit features reproductions of the authentic Churchill War Rooms bunker as designed for the Universal Pictures / Focus Features movie, “Darkest Hour.” It will take knowledgeable ‘Churchillians’ and less-informed history buffs into WWII’s secret spaces where Churchill and his staff confronted the Nazi onslaught.

Walkthrough Churchill’s Cabinet and Map Room and experience what it was to be in the room where Churchill planned his infamous D-Day concept. Experience what it was like when Churchill and the entire British War Cabinet made some of the most important wartime decisions outrunning any threat to the Queen Mary.
