Based on the controversial Churchill Papers - bought for 12.5 million with Heritage Lottery funding, and on show in Scotland for the first time - this exciting exhibition presents the evidence about one of the most controversial world figures and allows you to reach your own conclusion. Listen to Churchill's rousing wartime speeches, look through photograph albums depicting family life at Chartwell, and see his schoolboy letters as well as correspondence with kings, presidents, soldiers and celebrities.
