It’s half term at the Royal Gunpowder Mills and Professor Nitrate and crew are back to kick off 2018 with Mayhem in the Mad Lab! Join us as we open DAILY between February 10 – February 18 for awesome activities and super cool science.

Professor Nitrate - with the help budding volunteers – wants to create as much mayhem as possible in the Lab!  Join them in trying out some fantastic activities! 

Come along to the Mad Lab to try some great Take Home Activities and Learning Activities where you can get messy and learn about the science behind these experiments. There will be more information on these activities coming soon! 

As well as these great activities there are interactive science shows with the Professor the day at 11.40 , 1.40 and 3.40 where children and adults alike can learn about the science behind things that go whizz , bang and boom – not to be missed.

The history of this 300 year old site comes alive in our interactive exhibition and there is a rocket vault and armoury to explore.  Our 1940’s exhibition lets visitors walk down memory lane and feel what it was like in an air raid shelter as well as peak into the windows of shops from a bygone era.  For a nominal extra fee you can go on a 40 minute guided land train tour to view nature and historic buildings.

The Royal Gunpowder Mills opens its doors DAILY for Mayhem in the Mad Lab from February 10 – February 18 – Doors open 10am, Last Entry 3pm. Visit our website or follow us on social media we’re @gunpowdermills
