    Along the river you can see some of them. You can enter and see the inside. From the top floor you have also good views og the place and the other windmill. The entrance ticket is cheap.

    The open air museum also contains a recreated village of traditional houses and shops. You can just wander and imagine what it must have been like to live in Holland a 100 years ago.

    At the clog shop there are frequent demonstrations of how clogs are made using the various milling machines there. Its a great show even though it only lasts for 10 minutes.
