Sunny Sunday lunchtime in Haarlem with my family and my 6 year old asks if we can see the inside of the windmill. Sure. So we go in, pay our very reasonable entrance fee and expect a quick explanation plus cursory glance at the sails going round. Not a bit of it! Our guide, Peter, first sat us down with... More

We came to Haarlem to visit the Corrie Ten Boom house, but had to wait a while for the tour. So we pottered over to the windmill. We found the history and miniature models fascinating, and seeing the mill's history and the rebuilding was a tribute to the volunteers who rebuilt it. It is worth a visit to Haarlem if... More

Overall experience was tainted by the way we were treated with the children. We had a 10, 7, 5 and 2 year old with us and we kept the 2 year old outside and in lobby and not on the tour. Since it is right by the water we were in and out of the lobby and told very abruptly... More

We loved this museum. We had no idea how a windmill worked and it was great to be able to go up to each floor and see how the whole thing works and the how it is built. The guide was very informative, and there were only about 5 of us and we asked a lot of questions and he... More

I have to say this was a fantastic experience. Very knowledgeable volunteer took us around the windmill and explained everything there is to know about Windmills, the language of windmills, different uses of windmills... Really worth a visit we both really enjoyed it.

As soon as we got off the train, we were greeted by young men outside passing out orange Pringles (we suppose to support the national voetbol team)! They had recently been to Las Vegas and shared their visit with us after they found out we live there. They pointed us in the direction of the old Plaza area and we... More

I so wanted to take this tour...from across town this windmill is so picture perfect. We know this would have been excellent to visit, but we ran out of time. Don't make our mistake!!! Visit the windmill!

Wonderful tour of the windmill by a volunteer guide. Spent over an hour pointing out all aspects of the mill. We were able to tour all levels of the mill. Well worth a stop.

Was there in Dec 2013 on a quiet Monday afternoon. The walk from Grote Market (pardon any spelling error) was so pretty and picturesque. Touring the windmill was educational and the tour guide took time to make sure we understood all that he was saying (he was just a volunteer guide but all so dedicated!).
