The Churchill War Rooms is the world´s major museum dedicated to the life of Winston Churchill with its permanent exhibition housed in the Cabinet War Rooms. The War Rooms were the secret underground headquarters that allowed Churchill and his Cabinet to continue working throughout the Second World War. Situated beneath a Government Office, the site was chosen because it was sheltered from the expected air raids on London. The 21 rooms, that were the living quarters for military leaders and government officials, were abandoned after the war and left untouched until they were turned into a museum in 1984.
Churchill War Rooms is part of the following Editors' Picks:
"The Cabinet War rooms, where Churchill ran his government, are hidden deep beneath the busy pavements above and became the secret headquarters where Churchill and his staff fought against The Fuhrer. Meetings were held here during The Blitz, sometimes late into the night. The map room has been left as it was in 1945. In the museum one can also find out more about Churchill, the man, with a passion for cigars and painting. In addition, there is an attractive underground café. Open daily. Disabled access. £16.50 entrance charge includes voluntary donation to Imperial War Museums’ upkeep, of £2."
