Green's Windmill in Sneinton was built by the father of notable scientist and mathematician George Green in 1807. Today the working Mill is a popular museum and science centre, which teaches new generations of children about the valuable work of George Green.

Sadly, the mill was badly damaged by a fire in 1947, but was later restored by Nottingham City Council in the 1980's. The windmill began milling again in December 1986 and the giant sails can still be seen working to this day.

George Green was a mathematical genius who developed new ways of doing mathematics, which have helped scientists to understand the world around us. Test your brain power with the hands-on experiments in the Science Centre which explore electricity, magnetism and light, ideal for young children.

Opening times:

Wednesday - Sunday from 10am to 4pm (last admission 3.30pm).

FREE entry.
