The Mill Museum’s former location closed on June 3, 2019. In mid-2020, Mill Museum De Kalverliefde reopened at Kalverringdijk 30, Zaanse Schans.
The Mill Museum is managed by the De Zaansche Molen foundation. De Zaansche Molen also manages 13 other industrial mills that remain in operation. The Mill Museum explains the rise and fall of the milling industry from 1597 to date.
The Mill Museum
The Mill Museum, opened by Prince Consort Hendrik in 1928, displays a wide range of items related to the glory days of milling. Ranging from a copper tobacco box to the key to a mill; from a scale model to an old coffee pot.
Het Molenpanorama (The panorama of mills)
One of the museum’s highlights is Het Molenpanorama (The panorama of mills), painted by Frans Mars (co-founder of the De Zaansche Molen foundation) during World War II. The painting gives an impression of the eastern bank of the river Zaan circa 1800, as seen from Koog aan de Zaan’s former town hall.
A new location from mid-2020
The museum relocated in 2019. In mid-2020, Mill Museum De Kalverliefde reopened at Kalverringdijk 30, Zaanse Schans.
