Firepower is part of The Royal Artillery Museum of Woolwich and charters the history of the Gunners from the earliest cannons to the various artilleries employed today worldwide.

This engaging weapons museum shows every gun up close and details in which conflicts it was used in and with which ammunition. Visitors can also watch videos demonstrating the pieces in use and see how each works. It’s a fascinating London attraction that looks at how military personnel use armoury today – even in peacekeeping missions.

Visit the history gallery to see the history of weapons played out from the first slings and arrows to the earliest known recorded form of gunpowder then discover the history of 20th Century weaponry in the Gunnery Hall. This is certainly a unique attraction for any London visitor!
