Me and my boyfriend visited this museum and didn't know what to expect. It was a fantastic museum full of history and very famous guns and military equipment. We was having such a lovely day looking around and reading all about the guns and tanks when a volunteer named Martin asked if we would like a personal guided tour. We... More

Have just come back from a wonderfully organised and delivered Beaver Scout sleepover. The activities were great the beavers and their leaders had a brilliant time exploring the history of guns, WWII air raids, rocket launching and marching. The evening events even included a cleverly executed campfire. In the morning the event culminated in a kit inspection where the kids... More

Lovely day spent here looking at the exhibits, they even had a guided tour into a side building which stores several British prototypes and oddities that you won't see anywhere else. I learnt from the volunteer leading the tour that the place was due to close in 2017 and most of the collection will be shifted off site to rot... More

We spent a lovely day out here. The tour around the tanks and guns was excellent. The cafe very reasonable. The only thing was it wasn't well sign posted when you come out of the underground station and we did walk the opposite direction for a while.

We went to the Ghost Tour at Firepower last evening. An excellent tour guide who had clearly researched her subject and added humour to her speech. We were treated to sausages and mash and a cuppa which was included in the price. Overall an excellent experience and value for money.

A great historic location, and a fascinating museum as well. Find time to visit this place, and if you get a chance to look around the 'hidden' exhibits in the old hall, take it. Highlight of our 3 days in London & arrive by boat for an extra treat.

visited this museum on 3 or 4 occasions now, including an excellent ghost tour. There's always something new to see, there are so many things to see you never see it all, and it tells the himan side of the Royal Artillery in an excellent way. Well worth a visit (or two)

We were visiting on a day where they fired some cannons. That was an absolutely fantastic experience. The museum was great and had lots of interesting things to see and a nice amount of info which wasn't too wordy. We spend a couple of hours here including the firing. Catch the river bus as is docks right outside the museum.
