About the Wind Energy Museum

We are now open  Friday & Saturdays from 11am – 4pm (last entry 3pm). Children’s activities, guided tours, working examples & models plus a tea room and room to relax and enjoy the 2.5 acre site.

The Museum is located in Repps with Bastwick (close to Potter Heigham), Norfolk. NR29 5JU. We feature full sized wind pumps, steam engines and a unique scoop wheel along with a collection of photographs, models of various mills which all depict the evolution of the drainage of the Broads. Due to our broad collection of items the Museum holds interest for the young and the not so young at heart.

The majority of the mills featured at the Museum are some of the last remaining examples of their kind in the UK.

Guided tours of the Museum add a personal touch to your visit. Tours can be customised for group bookings or for those not so agile. Can’t visit? Perhaps your group would like to book one of our presenters as guest speaker at your venue. During school holiday periods we host children’s activities which all revolve around the power of the wind and are lots of fun.

Make sure you check our Open Days for the Museum.

Associated with the museum is Thurne Mill located via a 5 minute drive from the Museum or a leisurely stroll along the riverbank. This wind pump is certainly one of the most iconic mills on the Broads, open dates for the Mill will be available very soon.
