Windmill Museums in Kinderdijk, Netherlands

There are eight Nederwaard windmills at Kinderdijk. This is Nederwaard Windmill No. 1. Notice the grazing cattle. The animals are evidence most of the windmills are still occupied by farming families. An exception is next door at Museummolen Nederwaard, a heritage museum at Nederwaard Windmill No. 2. Inside of the working windmill from 1738 are the stories, furniture and photographs of the Hoek family. Imagine the challenges of raising ten children here. Also make sure to visit Museummolen Blokweer. The uniquely-shaped polder windmill was built in 1630. This makes the location of the Blokweer Museum Mill the oldest windmill in Kinderdijk by almost a century.
