Attraction in Waltham Abbey
The Royal Gunpowder Mills is a great place for families to spend days out exploring the secret history of gunpowder, explosives and rocket propellants through our engaging interactive Exhibitions, Science Shows and Children's Activities.
There is 300 years of explosive history brought to life through film, exhibitions and interactive displays. Explore the Armoury with over 200 historic fire-arms and visit the 'Rocket Vault' where you will be able to see some of the secret rockets worked on at Waltham Abbey.
Don't miss Professor Nitrate's Mad-Lab where you will find a fun-packed series of hands on experiments and activities set within the laboratory of the eccentric rocket scientist. The Professor is always on the look-out for willing volunteers to test his latest theories so visitors will need to be prepared for fun-filled and, occasionally, smoke-filled adventures!
