The Mühlerama of Zurich
Enter into the history of windmills in a fun and educational way.
Welcome to a different and alternative museum from the conventional kind of museums that you have seen up until now: the building which houses the Mühlerama is situated in a former windmill that was later used a brewery. The construction was carried out in 1913 but it wasn't until 1989 when it was refurbished in line with the style of the Belle Époque. The building isn't surprising, as its contents are... dedicated to windmills themselves: you can visit the engine room which has been maintained in operation to show visitors the process of the grain being turned into flour. There is also a historic section that shows the importance of windmills during the city's evolution and for its economy. Mühlerama was built to entertain visitors, and it even includes different activities for children, as well as its own restaurant and a piano bar where you can taste the local cuisine.
