Greenwich Heritage Centre was a museum and local history resource centre in Woolwich, south-east London, England. It was established in 2003 by the London Borough of Greenwich and was run from 2014 by the Royal Greenwich Heritage Trust until the centre's closure in July 2018. The museum was based in a historic building in Artillery Square, in the Royal Arsenal complex, which was established in the 17th century as a repository and manufactory of heavy guns, ammunition and other military ware.

  • Currently closed and apparently moving away from the former historic armaments industry compound to new premises. Unsurprisingly as this redevelopment has steadily mutated (almost exclusively) into a residential precinct with limited emphasis on developing/incentivising the collateral cultural fabric. This is probably the result of limited (non-specialist) tourist interest in this destination.
  • Small, but perfectly formed. Lots of interesting local information to absorb. Kids love it, particularly the dressing up part. Free "Museum Makes" activities on Saturdays, 10:30-12:00.
