Took the grandchildren. They seemed to enjoy it. Has a model train plus a lot of windmills and great explanation of workings and how important they were to the High Plains of Texas

I found this attraction interesting. Windmills and windmill history are presented they also have a huge model train and miniature house display. I'm not sure how they fit together but all in all a nice attraction.

They have windmills from the 1800's to current. All sizes and descriptions. They have mill stones and windmill weights. They also have miniatures and a really amazing toy train set up. Well worth the stop.

A windmill aficionado will be in heaven here. All the names... tech info... For anyone else, well, it’s a bunch of windmills. To try to add some interest they have some model trains going around. And a bunch of dollhouses. And an impressive mural.

They would certainly love the exhibit of model trains which is in a very large room. Their interest in the many different types of wind turbines would probably be limited, but the parent could help that by pointing out the... More

It's reasonably inexpensive. $5.00 per person or $10.00 per family. You could spend one or two hours inside, and spend another hour wandering around outside. I think I would have done it all in two hours, including the... More
