Overview
More
We feature full sized wind pumps, steam engines and a unique scoop wheel along with a collection of photographs, models of various mills which all depict the evolution of the drainage of the Broads. Due to our broad collection of items the Museum holds interest for the young and the not so young at heart. The majority of the mills featured at the Museum are some of the last remaining examples of their kind in the UK. Guided tours of the Museum add a personal touch to your visit. Tours can be customised for group bookings or for those not so agile. Can't visit? Perhaps your group would like to book one of our presenters as guest speaker at your venue. During school holiday periods we host children's activities which all revolve around the power of the wind and are lots of fun. Make sure you check our Open Days for the Museum.

This place is a great museum - your appreciation for wind power is heightened after sailing on the Broads. It is volunteer run, so please call ahead to make sure they are open, and use the postcode NR29 5JU to help you find it. If...More

We came across this museum a little by accident after seeing just it's name on a small map. It is situated in really lovely grounds with the only sounds being the wind in the numerous sail/turbines of the exhibits and the birds singing. Really excellent...More

Especially suitable for the area (given its proximity to the Wind Park), it was rather informative for the benefits of wind power, the impact (positive and perhaps negative) to the local community, and –basically– how wind power could be converted into electricity.

a hidden gem and if they have an event on it makes it well worth a visit. Quite hard to find initially - run by volunteers who are excellent

OK, so the owner Debra showed me round herself & perhaps that's not everyone's experience. But her knowledge & enthusiasm really brings the exhibits to life. It's fascinating to learn how wind power has been so important for land drainage, water pumping, power generation &...More
