We happened to be going through town and saw this neat windmill in the Tex Ritter Park. Very small museum with a precious elderly woman keeping it... Great history on the town and the Dutch culture. Not great for young children...

It's a fun to see a Dutch windmill in Nederland Texas. From the size self, it's different, shorter than the real one. It's possible that there was no instrument of a windmill supposed to have inside this windmill. It was closed when we were there...More

Saw this small museum on TV. Neat little place to check out some local history. There's also a small Acadian museum next door. Try on some real wooden shoes while learning about Nederland. A small spiral stair pole will take you upstairs for more exhibits....More
