Mid-America Windmill Museum

They continue to add more windmills, and inside the workshop you can see how some of the mechanisms work up close. Their video is a bit goofy because it's geared toward kids, but it's still interesting. The docents are passionate about their windmills, and the town has a long history with them.

Mid-America Windmill Museum

We visited my husband's hometown last year and his mother took us to see the Mid-America Windmill Museum. It was interesting and still in process of adding more windmills. There was quite a variety. A quaint mid-west attraction.

It has a short movie of the windmill history before touring and a gift shop. There was also a wedding event planned there for later that day.

There are currently over 50 windmills in the collection, many displayed outdoors along a farm path. May 2017: Photo added.
