We are a small museum that showcases not only the iconic Wimbledon Windmill which has stood on the same spot for over 200 years, but tells the story of windmills and wind power. There are fascinating working models of windmills and hundreds of windmill-related artefacts. The museum has exhibits for both young and old, covering windmills and milling as well as local history and the Scouting movement. Opened in 1976 on the first floor only, the ground floor was still being used as accommodation for the Wimbledon Common Rangers. However, a Heritage Lottery Grant enabled the museum to be extended to both floors in 1999.
At least one hour should be allowed to see all the exhibits.
Admission is free
