Family Focused Top Pick

To celebrate Independence Day, Hagley Museum will be firing off the cannon on July 4! The cannon firings take place in the Hagley Powder Yards and demonstrate how black powder was made and used when Hagley was a black powder manufactory. Cannon Firings will take place at 1, 2, and 3p.m...

Included in admission, free for members.

Demonstration dates are subject to change and often dates are added each season. Please check back to see additional dates as they are added.

An in-depth, hands-on tour focused on gunpowder production, which ends with an explosive finish(!), is available on our Sights, Sounds and Smells Walking Tour.

Full cannon demonstrations for group tours are available with our Hagley's a Blast! tour option. For group tour rates, contact group tour manager, Bonnie Wirth, at [email protected].
