Now that the pandemic is waning perhaps a road trip is in your future. Consider a day trip to Fulton, Missouri.
In the small college town you will find the Winston Churchill Museum. It's a small museum dedicated to the life of Sir Winston Churchill that was built after he gave his legendary "Iron Curtain" speech at Westminster College. The museum is underneath the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury, a 12th century church from the middle of London, redesigned by Sir Christopher Wren in 1677, that was relocated to Fulton.
Outdoors there's a Churchill statue, and chunks of the Berlin Wall arranged into art by his granddaughter, Edwina Sandys. Arizona may have the London Bridge, but Missouri has the Berlin Wall.
