Green's Windmill is a restored 19th Century tower mill, once home to mathematical physicist George Green. Turning again since 1986, climb to the top of our windmill and see how our sails turn grain into flour. In our interactive Science Centre discover the remarkable story of George Green, and experiment with light, electricity and magnetism. There's something for all the family!

We took our grandchildren and they loved it, the only down side was that there was no one to tell them about the workings, there was a gentleman inside but he didn't offer any information on how the mill was run. The museum was really good and the grandchildren had a good time. Definitely worth a visit.

I've been here a few times to the booking classes for my toddler daughter. A fantastic and very cheap activity, which she thoroughly enjoys. Staff are great, and the windmill and facilities are fabulous. A fantastic gem in the most random location!!

Lovely working windmill and a little science centre and playground too. Very knowledgable and friendly staff. All free too which is rare these days! Doesn't take long to walk around but well worth a visit.

Not many people (even in Nottingham) know the story of Greens' Theorem...And I don't know the maths behind it but if you visit the stunning windmill and accompanying science exhibition, you will find out the amazing story of a Nottingham maths genius who worked as a humble mill worker whilst working out a massively complex problem which shocked the maths...

As Green's Windmill is still a working mill its exceptionally interesting however, the "centre" attracted to it is dull and doesn't seem to have any connection to the windmill itself. There is a lovely outside area for the kids to run around and have a picnic but if the weather is bad you're there is no where to eat a... More

Really great to go and explore - although most of the facilities are aimed towards kids. Staff seemed really friendly and there's a good history of the windmill too :) Worth it just for the views of Nottingham even if you don't have kids with you!

We found it while on a walk around town, and were charmed. A very well-run attraction with nice staff and a real, operating flour mill using wind power exclusively - in the city! Simply great.

I took my children here a few years ago and they really enjoyed themselves. They enjoyed climbing to the top of the windmill and learning about how everything worked.
