What is Firepower?
Firepower, The Royal Artillery Museum is based at the Royal Arsenal in Woolwich – the birthplace of the Royal Artillery which was founded there in 1716. The Museum tells the story of the Gunners – the men and women of the Royal Artillery, and the part they have played in history and their role today in the front line with the British Army. Tales of extraordinary heroism and endeavour are presented alongside explanations the technological and scientific advances driven by the development of artillery from Roman times to the present day. 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.
