On the Thames-side site at Woolwich where the Regiment of the Royal Artillery – the Gunners – was established in the early 18th century, three listed buildings, including Europe's oldest military academy (thought to be designed by Hawksmoor and the location where Wellington drew up his battle plans) house Firepower: Royal Artillery Museum, an attraction telling the story of the Gunners, alongside an interactive history of artillery and an attempt to reckon the human cost of conflict through film, poetry and music. The attraction's Cold War Gallery provides a chronological tour from 1945 to the present. Exhibits at Firepower: Royal Artillery Museum include rare post-war guns and images of significant events such as the fall of the Berlin Wall.

My favourite place in Woolwich, great Sunday morning coffee with paper in chesterfield style armchair, pity it closed this year.
absolutely a waste of time, the place is just a warehouse full of old war machines that you could not touch, no activities for children and the area surrounding is very miserable,just dont go
