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!

Thank you very much for a lovely afternoon with you - you looked after our group very well and were very patient. We attended with close to 30 children, many of whom did not speak English and were on an exchange with the Chernobyl Children's Lifeline (CCLL). The staff were excellent throughout with access to their services and a very... More

This is a lovely place to visit with your children, but make sure there is an event on like bread making or flour making as it makes the experience much better. You can google the times etc on the web.

Really fascinating to go up into the windmill with the sails in full turn. So pleased to see this windmill fully restored. Lovely stone ground flour made on site. Visited whilst another 'Sneinton' event was on and the place had a lovely buzz and is clearly well cared for. However we didn't find the Science centre had a lot in... More

This review is skimpy due to our visiting too late to get in. Walked the grounds and was impressed by the size and beauty of the old brick conical tower. Learned that it was built in early 1800s and later destroyed by fire in 1947. Restored in the "80s and now offers a wonderful way to see how grain was... More

Fabulous opportunity to see working windmill. Wide range of activities/small group sessions for all ages .Particularly good for children to have opportunity to grind own corn and then get chance to bake with it. Small science museum alongside so perfect for school trips.

Interesting visit to a science museum with lots of activities for children and an interesting look back in time at the windmill's history. Highly recommended!

Great to see the windmill in use. An educational visit. You can buy the flower in the shop. Doesn't take long but as easy parking you can incorporate this into your day doing other things too.

Took my kids here for the cookie baking activity which they really enjoyed (although it wasn't cheap at £4 a child) and there is the windmill to see, which was in operation during our visit. There is also a small museum to explore. The mill and museum are free to enter. In addition, there is a small community garden behind... More
