  • We arrived soon after the museum opened on a Saturday and were the only ones there. It’s a self guided tour with a few QR codes to scan for more information. Not all the signs are in English...

  • This small museum is excellent for learning all about how wind mills are working and their history. Every part is visible and you can see how everything is working and constructed.

  • Good place to visit. You will get to see many old ancient objects used during 17th to 18th century. Some nice collection in the museum. And city view from the top is mesmerizing. There are total 7 floors which you can visit.
  • I love it… if you ever wonder how it looks like to be inside a house in a wind mill, you should go there. Inside house is beautiful too.
