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!

A quick tour about Flour making

This is a quick pit stop but worth visiting as the mill is very well preserved and seeing it in action is fascinating

I love Green's Windmill and I hope that it remains open as it is a local treasure. If we have visitors staying from outside the city it is a venue we like to take them to because it is interesting on so many levels. The little play park with its references to physics is a great little space. The views... More

Adults might find it a little bit boring but it is indeed informative. Children might like it as there is a small science museum here with activities that are suitable for children.

We had a very pleasant visit to Green's Windmill in Sneinton, Nottingham. There are lots for children to do and also a tour of the windmill which we found fascinating. It is definitely worth a visit and cups of tea are available.

being born during the war in a close proximity brought back many childhood memoires , when I was young it was practically just a building with no sails and empty, now its a view of the past , well worth a visit

Come and enjoy the working windmill, Green was a millers son who was very good at maths, you can find out about him and at certain time they have activaties for the kids, check them out on the wed site, also get some freshly milled flour before you leave.

It is a nice little place, with an interesting history, that has been done well. Best suited to young children and adults that have an interest in old buildings and science. I took a few groups of teenagers aged 14 - 18 years, it was difficult to keep them engaged. It only takes an hour or less to have a... More
