Quite interesting indoor/outdoor museum. Lovely setting to learn about American windmills and, if you have kids, they can play among them.

Got there after closing, but we walked around and got to see some fine windmills. This looks nicely done and taken care of. If you like the subtle differences in this machinery, you should visit. I only wish there had been a slot or lock-box...More

This is OK if you like windmills ; ) If you have an hour and are interested go ahead and walk the grounds and see some fascinating mills. I believe this is part of a triathlon course as well.

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!

A museum about windmills that most of us have seen, but have never known the history about! Docent takes you through 15/20 min background of windmills, then you watch a 5 min video - then off to see the windmills in action - this is...More

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.
