A Quick Overview of Firepower Woolwich
Firepower: The Royal Artillery Museum is a military museum in Woolwich in south-east London, England, which tells the story of the Royal Artillery and of the Royal Arsenal.

- It was originally established to preserve Royal Artillery (RA) history and as a training collection.
- Over two million men and women have served in the RA since its formation and human stories of bravery and sacrifice are told throughout the museum.
- The museum is located in some of the former buildings of the Royal Arsenal, which was Britain's principal ordnance manufacturing facility from the early 18th century until the mid-20th century.
