This place is huge! The entrance very lovely with so many windmills on the lawn. More interesting things to see inside. They need more visitors to spread the word.

They have a very fascinating train display and display of miniature houses. My husband and I were very interested in the windmills and milling by stones. The kids thought the trains and running around outside was better.

Stopped by here on out trip home from Montana. After seeing so many windmills in Nebraska and power generators throughout the high plains of Texas, it was interesting to see the history of windmills from the 1800's to today. 28 acres worth. Hundreds of "fans"...More

Loving making pit stops to see interesting sites within towns/cities that I visit. This is certainly a must see if you are in the area.

I wind to wind power power center out of curiosity. I was amazed at how many wind mills they had. It was interesting the different types and what they are used for. Kids will like the model train loop.

So much to see! Something for everyone. Don't miss the trains and the doll houses. There is a "farm" of windmills outside, but they don't compare with what's waiting for you inside. We spent 2 hours inside and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Even the mill...More

There are four collections: windmills, grindstones, trains, dollhouses. We didn't see the connection of the latter two. We saw the connection to the grindstones. But there was no windmill with a grindstone and maybe one windmill looked large enough to power a grindstone. There isn't...More

Fascinating experience! Take the time to be amazed. Learning about the wind power that helped settle the prairie to the sustained energy producer we see all around us today. This museum is both nostalgic and relevant.

They would certainly love the exhibit of model trains which is in a very large room. Their interest in the many different types of wind turbines would probably be limited, but the parent could help that by pointing out the... More

It's reasonably inexpensive. $5.00 per person or $10.00 per family. You could spend one or two hours inside, and spend another hour wandering around outside. I think I would have done it all in two hours, including the... More
