Dutch Windmills in Spring

    Newer Older

    The first small mill is a Meadow mill or drainage windmill from the Zaan region, built 1850, relocated in the Dutch Open Air Museum in 1989.
    The mill in the background, a Towermill or Smockmill, is from municipality of Delft, built 1685, relocated 1921. This windmill is a stone flourmill measuring 27 metres in height. It houses six floors, each of which was used by the miller in his daily work.

    In a beautiful, wooded park (44 hectares) on the outskirts of Arnhem lies the very special Dutch Open Air Museum (Nederlands Openluchtmuseum in Dutch).
    Here, you can step into more than 80 historic houses, farms, mills, factories from different parts of the Netherlands over the last 350 years. Friendly farmers, the wheelwright, the blacksmith, the fisherman and the miller paint you a colourful picture of their lives.
    Step aboard the museum tram and take a journey back in time. The heritage tram line with classic electric trams from Amsterdam, Arnhem, Rotterdam and The Hague is 1750 m long. The pride of the museum's line is a recreation of an Arnhem tram from 1929.
    The Dutch Open Air Museum won many prizes, for example: the European Museum of the Year Award in 2005 and de Dutch Museum Award 2009.

    Het voortste windmolentje is een Weidemolen uit de Zaanstreek. Oorspronkelijk is dit molentje rond 1850 gebouwd, en naar het Nederlands Openluchtmuseum (NOM) verplaatst in 1989.
    De achterste windmolen, een stellingmolen, stamt uit Delft, ZH.
    Oorspronkelijk gebouwd in 1685, en naar het museum verplaatst in 1921. Deze stenen korenmolen van 27 meter hoog heeft zes verdiepingen: de hooi, slee-, maal-, steen-, lui- en kapzolder.
    Voor de molen een veldje met bloeiende gele koolzaad.

    Het Nederlands Openluchtmuseum (NOM) even ten noorden van Arnhem in een bosrijk gebied is een nationaal museum over het dagelijks leven van gewone mensen in de afgelopen 350 jaar. Meer dan 80 historische huizen, boerderijen, molens, fabrieken uit verschillende delen van Nederland zijn er te zien. Vriendelijke boeren, de wagenmaker, de smid, de visser en de molenaar geven een kleurrijk beeld van hun leven. Het hele museumterrein (44 hectare) is gemakkelijk bereikbaar met de museumtram.
    De tramlijn is 1750 meter lang. Klassieke elektrische trams uit Amsterdam, Arnhem, Rotterdam en Den Haag brengen bezoekers naar alle uithoeken van het park.
    De trots van het museum is een replica van een Arnhemse tram uit 1929.
    Regelmatig valt het Nederlands Openluchtmuseum in de prijzen, bijvoorbeeld de European Museum Award van het jaar 2005 en de Nederlandse museumprijs van 2009.
