Eemu Windmill

The windmill was opened to visitors on May 17th 1980. The predecessor of a windmill is a quern, which was first turned manually, then with the power of water and later also wind. Small farm windmills of Western Estonia and the islands are rather unique nature in the rural architecture; similar features can be noted in Scandinavia and Western Finland.
Good to know: Although the windmills have lost their economic importance by today, the Eemu trestle windmill has remained the acknowledged symbol in Muhu, enriching the landscape and witnessing the tough work, done by our ancestors.
