Small and cozy museum where, however, it is explained in a very clear and visual way how mills worked in past centuries and how "gofio" (toasted cereal flour) was made in them.

Thanks to the recreation of spaces (a 19th century kitchen, for example), as well as the multitude of details that we find in the museum, we transport ourselves to past centuries and imagine what life would be then.

Finally, Gema, the museum guide, was very kind and enthusiastic explaining not only the history of the gofio and the mills, but also providing us with very useful information about the island.

A highly recommended museum!

This Windmill is in the grounds of the Cheese Museum, T/A map position is wrong (will try to change, but normally request is ignored)

It is fascinating to imagine people actually building & using this Windmill.
I like to look at the design & workmanship, & to think they built it without modern machinery.
Don't know if it has been refurbished, but it is very good condition.
Well worth a visit.

Only 2€ per adult and children were free. We were there about an hour. Some interactive games and quizzes on island geography, goats and cheese. Lovely cactus garden. Windmill was pretty but nothing really inside.

This small museum was one of the stops of our HOHO bus (Antigua Experience) and it was worth a look for 30 minnutes ! There is a goat cheese museum inside and a nice garden outside !

We stopped here in error to be honest, as we thought this was the windmill that is actually South of here.
As we had stopped and it was only €2 per adult to go in we had a look anyway.
Luckily it was quiet when we visited, so I could get some shots of the windmill people free.
The setup is a little strange, windmill, cheese museum and a cactus garden all rolled into one venue.
The cheese museum is focused on goats cheese in the main and is strangely interesting to wander around the exhibition halls.
Cactus gardens can be found at the rear and are worth a walk around.
There is a small cafe and toilets also.
Worth a visit for an hour if passing by.

There is a lot of stuff to see. If it is a rainy day, go there. Two museums, the windmill, stories about ancient canary population, all for 2 euro's.

This was a very pleasant museum outlining the production of goats cheese. A lovely setting with good and informative displays. Very friendly staff, small gift shop and nice cafe.

It's a nice little museum in the middle of the island. Featuring a real life windmill and a stunning cactus garden along with a thorough and somewhat interactive exhibit about the island, its formation, flora and fauna ending in cheesemaking tradition.
It's a nice place to visit and we enjoyed reading about various topics, and taking a lot of pictures with kooky cacti.
The only disappointment was the lack of local cheese tasting.
