Create an itinerary including Molen De Adriaan Museum
A Haarlem landmark for over two centuries, Molen De Adriaan Museum sits in the center of the city and provides insight about the history and architecture of Dutch windmills. Built in 1778 and badly damaged during a 1932 fire, the structure recently underwent a major reconstruction. Carefully restored to its old glory, the windmill is again fully functional, though not often in use. You can see it grinding grain on the weekends, and if you come on a weekday, join a guided tour to learn about the historical significance of windmills in this part of Europe.

  • It’s a cute windmill! Came for the Dutch landscape aesthetic, and this is exactly what I got! Though I couldn’t enter the windmill, I was happy to get a nice view of the area.
  • My friends and I had a wonderful time exploring the Molen de Adriaan while we were in Haarlem. We opted for the longer tour and are so thankful that we did, because we got to learn about the inner workings of the windmill, and even watched the miller stop the windmill in real time. Our guide was friendly and super knowledgeable about the history of the structure and the importance of windmills in literally shaping the Netherlands. If you make it to Haarlem, don't pass this gem by - it's worth the visit!
