Firepower, The Royal Artillery Museum is based at the historic riverside Royal Arsenal in Woolwich, south east London. The child-freindly Museum tells the story of the Gunners - the men and women of the British Army's Royal Artillery.

Experiences at Firepower include the ground-shaking Field of Fire audio-visual show where visitors are put in the midst of battle as shells and aircraft fly overhead and guns roar all around, giving an insight into the experiences of an artillery gunner. A cafe, shop, full disabled and baby-changing facilities ensure you will have everything you need to make your visit complete.

The museum has something for all ages and summer 2013 has a fabulous programme of activities planned - watch the exciting video here
