The National Churchill Museum is set to open a new exhibit called “'Sinews of Peace': Power of Prose” on Thursday showcasing Winston Churchill’s complete draft of his “Iron Curtain” speech. The speech was given 70 years ago in the Historic Gym of Westminster College in Fulton.

Timothy Riley, Director and Chief Curator of the museum, said this exhibit is one of many things planned for the 70th anniversary of the speech.

“We’re using the entire year to really lift up and celebrate the occasion,” said Riley.

The National Winston Churchill Museum in Fulton is hoping to get more visitors through a new documentary.

The film was shown Tuesday night at the Jefferson City Capitol City Cinema as an inaugural presentation for the theater. It was preceded by a reception at Capitol City Cork and Provisions, a new restaurant that is connected to the theater.

Rob Havers is the Director of the Churchill Museum. He said he hopes the film will help with tourism.
