Museum Mill

How we made land out of water in 1633.

From 1633 to 1635, the lake Schermeer was drained by 52 mills, resulting in the Schermerpolder.

A unique piece of water management from the Golden Age.

The Museum Mill is one of the mills that is left over and you can see it from top to bottom.
You see how the mill works and how people used to live in the mill.

Come to the Schermer and enjoy the vast landscape, the mills and the history of the reclamation.


A visit to the Museum Mill could be part of an arrangement.
