The National Winston Churchill Library and Center, located on the first floor of Gelman Library of The George Washington University, is the U.S. compliment to the Churchill War Rooms and Chartwell House in England. Through its collections, interdisciplinary academic programs, and educational exhibits, the Center offers students, faculty, researchers, and the public the opportunity to examine the life and legacy of Churchill.
The Center's entry features an all-glass storefront to promote openness and curiosity with large, borderless video monitors just inside the glass line. The bright, welcoming space accommodates up to 150 people who will be able to view memorabilia and artifacts, conduct research, and participate in seminars, classes, and special events. The Center provides a reading room, work spaces for curators and visiting scholars, and catering facilities.
