A collection of 53 windmills on display with a pedestrian covered bridge and Koi (goldfish) pond. Knowledgeable volunteers. Meeting hall for weddings, birthdays, or reunions. Nice and clean. Reasonable priced. A delightful find.

If you like history, local color, and learning how things work, this is a fun, low-key place to visit. This town has a long history with windmills, and the docents are passionate about their windmills. Highly recommended!

The windmills were fascinating. The tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. The engineering of the windmills was very creative. There are many working windmills. In the 1920's there were over 80 manufactures near this site.

Take a walk along a trail of antique windmills lovingly preserved by volunteers. This museum is unique, and important in the preservation of a bygone era. There is also an indoor section in the barn, and a gift shop. We attend Kite Day most every...More

If you are interested in machinery this is not to be missed. From the basic idea of using the wind to turn a wheel and convert that rotary motion to do work comes so many different detail variations. For most work you want a constant...More
