"An Iron Curtain has descended across the Continent." It was 1946 when Winston Churchill delivered that line during a speech at Westminster College. The iconic phrase has been frozen in time ever since, including at the Iron Curtain sculpture that now stands on campus and almost never blinks. The sculpture depicts the statesman in middle of the speech that arguably marked the beginning of the Cold War.

Churchill's voice and leadership marked many of the 20th Century's most important moments, and this legacy is chronicled within Westminster College's National Churchill Museum. The museum is housed beneath St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury, a church originally built in London in 1677 and eventually moved stone by stone to the college's campus.

Here, the Winston S. Churchill: A Life of Leadership exhibit chronicles Churchill's life in full. Displays incorporate artifacts, audio-visual components, and interactive areas, including a "gentleman's club" with an overstuffed chair, where visitors can listen to tales of Churchill's intelligence and humor. In addition to this permanent exhibit, rotating exhibits showcase different items from the museum's ever-growing vault, which now houses more than 10,000 artifacts.

NecroPlanet’s trifecta of eerie attractions paints a bleak portrait of Earth’s future: organized society has buckled, and chaos reigns over the desolate landscape. Necropolis, the fright site's signature haunt, acts as a factory that rises from the debris and houses evil spirits thirsty for living souls. The creatures that lurk in The Pit, a haunted house that must be navigated in total darkness, succumb to a sinister hunger for human flesh or more quality daytime soap operas. The final haunted labyrinth, Chaos in 3D, highlights the horror of nuclear waste and radiation smoldering beneath the wreckage for awestruck guests wearing 3-D glasses.
