Seven or eight handmade working models of different kinds of windmills are on display. One can see how the gears of the windmill operated the milling. An informative video is available.

Across the street from De Immigrant Windmill is a wonderful place to expand your interest in windmills. The story of how 40+ windmills were built by one man is awesome. A great many are on display with neat graphics at Windmill Cultural Center.
