About
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!

Not the average Mill, much better

Apart from all things flour mill related, those of a mathematical calling may recognise George Green's other passtime.

Great place
Sep 2021
Very interesting to be able to go inside a proper windmill. It wasn't working when we were there, but that wasn't a problem, just one of those things, and as it's free to get in, you can't really complain. My daughter, who says she hates science, absolutely loved the science centre and the fact that it was so hands on. The people working there were lovely and friendly, and the food and drink was very reasonably priced. Very enjoyable visit and would like to go back when the windmill is working.

Going inside a windmill, a great experience when it's running. Also the scientific experiments workshop is very inspiring especially it was the birthplace of the mathematician George Green.

Wonderful Windmill
Aug 2021
A lovely site in central Nottingham. We took our grandchildren (8 and 10). The windmill was not working because there was not enough wind but we will try and take them back on a windy day. The attached science centre contained about 15 experiments that I was a little concerned about as my grandson is autistic and can be rough with equipment but they were so well designed as to be almost indestructible so and they were really interesting and caught the children's imagination. There was also a craft session on site that we were invited to join and both children were delighted with the metal butterflies they made. The staff throughout the site were very friendly an approachable.
There is also a lovely playground next to it. All free and 2 hours free parking.
We can thoroughly recommend.

A great visit

We visited the windmill today. Despite having to book in advance and not being able to tour the mill. The man who worked in the mill did a brilliant job at explaining to my children how the mill worked and did a great job at keeping them engaged too. Also we were able to go round the science museum and shop, in total we were there around 45 mins. For a free activity with a local free car park ( for 2 hours) and a good playground it was great for us and well worth the visit.

Fun for an hour

Good for those who like windmills and who are interested in mathematics as the mill owner was a ground-breaking mathematician. Small science exhibit. Enthusiastic staff.

Nice place but seriously not much to do apart from climb the windmill
Aug 2019 • Family
We went as a family last year to visit as it was suppose to be a fayre on but when we arrived there was like 3 stalls. we did venture up the windmill but due to my vertigo and the steps being so steep.. i could only got 3 levels but my boy went further up but sadly the last level(top) was closed which was a shame. we went in the shop experience and the staff were nice and there are some fun things for the kids but sadly for our first ever visit it was a let down.we did enjoy our time but we only go to that area for the park just below and the views..nice little garden in the back

It was really exciting to see working mill. Also view on the city from the to of the hill is excellent! just need to keep in mind when visiting with children that the stairs ate quite steep and one of our little one decided to stay at first floor.
The science centre is interesting with lot of optical illusions, some information about magnets and electricity. Educating information about Green and his achievements.

Very interesting to see a working mill

Friendly and helpful staff and good information boards on each level of the the mill to explain how it works. Would have been even more interesting had it been in operation when we visited
