Great afternoon, you can go to see the windmills from the outside and go to the cafe/shops but it's well worth taking the optional tour which was very reasonably priced for the time we were given. Our guide was brilliant with kids and let them have a hands on experience with the milling and had fun with them too, had lots of time for questions and seemed to enjoy his job very much! The tour itself takes you into two fields into one windmill and up close to an older one. If you've young kids, make sure they've used the toilet as there's nowhere to go once you leave the main building and the tour took about 40 minutes. Also it was freezing as the area its in is quite open so wrap up! We went off-peak and there was snack food available in the cafe, good coffees and a nice gift shop. Something different to do!
