Completed in 2002, the Vermeer Mill was built by Lucas Verbij in the Netherlands and assembled by two Dutch craftsmen in Pella. Tours of the Mill cost $10 for adults and $6 for students with IDs.

Maybe a bit expensive for what it was. Especially since there was construction. Maybe the price was different for Tulip Time? Either way the highlights were the wedding dress and Dutch clothes displays in the museum and the windmill. And, of course, they had lots of tulips. Apparently Wyatt Earp was born on this block too!

Nice place to visit, Tulip time is probably the optimal time to go, that is a huge festival that goes on. Be prepared for massive crowds then. Any other time, no crowds and a pleasant day can be spent here.

Not really worth the cost of admission.
