    Very nice place that attracts lots of tourists. The museum and the biscuit and chocolate factory was best. They have a superb archive of the factory and what it was like to work there. The rest, although lovely, was crowded. You should buy a ticket that gets you into everything so you can visit one of the windmills, the Coopers and the Clock Museum too as well as a reduced parking rate. There are lots of shops selling tourist tack. This will fill 3 hours easily.

    It's beautiful! Lots to do at the place! There's a cheese factory with amazing cheese(Buy the Gouda variety). They have a worshop in which they demonstrate how to make wooden clogs. In addition to these, it's filled with fun things to do. And the view is spectacular, one that you can't get tired of! All in all, an amazing experience and a great way to see everything Dutch!

    If your interested in learning about the roots of The Netherlands, you've gotta visit this museum and it's outdoor facilities. There are a variety of expeditions to explore, such as the chocolate museum, history of clogs (wooden shoes) and a tour of the wondmills. Absolutely beautiful!

    Working windmill near Amsterdam! Free entrance only at the Spice Mill while the other mills may be privately owned. All mills are operational and producing items for sale and entrance may be at a fee to help upkeep and maintain these very nice windmills.

    Zaans museum is a great and nice museum to introduce windmill history. You will find the sub-level is showing the history of Verkade chocolate factory. If you ever go to Zaans Schans, you must visit this museum.
