When you go in the museum, be sure to watch the 8 minute dvd showing the mill in action. The mill is almost all made of wood rather than metal, There is also a nice Santa Fe Trail section. One fascinating display is of small (1-2 ft) cement sculptures of various people. I thought they were wood carvings. They were... More

The Smoky Valley Roller Mills is an actual original Flour Mill still producing flour when operating. But they have tours of the mill from when the wheat arrives from the fields showing how from top to bottom wheat is turned into flour. If you've never seen flour made, you must stop & take a tour. You have a higher appreciate... More

The lady at the desk was fantastic and I thought the mill was well taken care of. There are a lot of stairs so be aware of that. Is worth a stop and there are some photos to be taken but it is not one of the best museums I have ever seen. Still, if you are in the area... More

The lady at the desk, Lorna N., is a five star greeter. She started us with the movie. The mill itself is three stories of intricate machinery. The Swedish pavilion & old railway station (across the street) were included in the $2 entry fee. I enjoyed a $1 bottle of Kansas brewed root beer sold in the combo entry/ gift... More

You have an old mill museum, and across the street (for the same low $2) see a few 100+ years old buildings (schools, bank, drugstore, train depot, and a few others) that will hold your interest for awhile. Then go to one of the few Swedish restaurants/tourist shops a few blocks downtown. Or go to Coronado Heights a few miles... More

I have never ran across a working mill. Many exhibits from an era long gone in these parts. Will probably take the kid again and recommended if looking for some history in the Lindsborg Area.

It has been a couple years since I visited the Old Mill Museum. It is in a very nice setting with a waterway and plenty to see and learn. It is a multi-level museum that gives you the feeling that you are living in the past. The village across the street is like entering a town of the 1880s. Lots... More

The museum itself is brilliant, but the park by the old mill (down by the river) is astonishing and wonderful!

Beautifully restored, love all the beautiful wood in this mill. The vintage dioramas of Lindsborg history are perfectly charming. Enjoyed strolling through the heritage village with historical buildings and diverse contents. In a lovely setting by the river, fun place to take photographs.
