If you’ve always wanted to visit the Netherlands but don’t have the time or money, we have the next-best thing: the Dutch Windmill Museum in Nederland, Texas. This unique museum is housed inside a 40-foot-tall structure that’s an exact replica of a traditional Dutch windmill, and it features authentic items from the Netherlands such as dolls and wooden shoes. A visit here is the perfect quick day trip that you’ll want to take again and again.
