There is a full function Dutch Windmill. Unfortunately, when I went there last week it was broken and it could take few months to fix. A narrator told us before it broke it could grind wheat (or different kinds of grains) into flour. I would give it higher rate if it was working. The Windmill Cultural Center collects a lot... More

The Windmill Cultural Center is a bright, cheerful and clean building with many hand made windmill models on display. The volunteer staff is knowledgeable and able to answer many questions you may have about the displays. There's a small gift shop area, and a children's section, as well.

There is a lot of interesting educational information at the cultural center. There are numerous model-size windmills that are used for different functions. The guide at the cultural center gives a fantastic explanation. There is other Dutch heritage, gifts, and food items here. This is a free center. Donations, of course, are welcome.

We enjoyed visiting this museum and cultural center (stopped here after seeing the nearby Windmill). They have a few working models of European Windmills, food and souvenirs. The volunteers working there are very nice and knowledgeable.

We visited the nearby windmill and the cultural center. The people there obviously have a passion for the history of windmills. Nice gift shop with items from the Netherlands and flour ground at the windmill.

It has working windmills of other countries. Tour guide was a sweet lady. She took us through a tour of the models which some of them work. Gave us a back ground history of the gentleman who donated a model. She really knew her stuff.

After visiting the windmill we went across the street to the windmill cultural center where they had many models of windmills across Europe three of which where operational. It was very interesting to see how these big structures worked and the different varieties ranging from the ones in the Netherlands to the Mediterranean style ones found in Greece. There's also...
