We visited the museum and enjoyed the history of Nederland which is named after the Netherlands. There is a small gift shop with nice stuff. It is located in Tex Ritter Park and there is a nice Acadian Home which is available to tour. Donations are welcomed.
This precious little town is called Nederland. A quaint town full of shops on Nederland Ave, and some on Boston Ave. Come visit us, wander through town, eat at Sartins for the best Barbeque Crab you've ever had in your life! The Windmill is full of history, beautifully told and well maintained. It tells the story of our beginning.
This was a Dutch settlement during the Spindletop Oil discovery. The Dutch heard land was being given away here so they settled here and raised their family and started business.
On the outside this place looks small, but they sure cram a lot of good stuff and make it comfortable to walk. It has a nice history of town and what the Dutch did to build it. The Dutch heritage still continues today in Nederland.
I will preface this review by saying that I grew up in Nederland and have a ton of bulldog pride. However, the Windmill Museum is an astounding tribute to the founders of my small hometown. I have personally visited the museum on a number of occasions during school field trips and on my own just to see what has changed.... 更多
This was fun to see and take a tour of. The man who ran the museum was very knowledgable and since we were the only ones there we got to ask all the questions. Lots of older memorabilia and city folklore to learn.
We enjoyed this place! The lady inside the windmill museum was so sweet and full of fun facts! We bought some windmill cookies, from Holland! We then went next door to the Cajun cabin museum. The man working there was also very kind and generous with his knowledge. We loved looking at old time kitchen/furnishings. Great for Kids!
