Zeer verrassend museum en zeker de moeite waard om even de 4 trappen te nemen. Mooi uitzicht en de historie van de molen is interessant te noemen. Bijzonder om de molenaarswoning te bezichtigen.

Leuk om het molenmuseum een keer te zien. Fijn dat dit gratis met een museumkaart kan, want je bent er ook vrij gauw weer klaar.
