Welcome to the Wimbledon Windmill Museum

The museum has exhibits for both young and old, covering windmills and milling as well as local history and the Scouting movement. Opened in 1976 on the first floor only, the ground floor was still being used as accommodation for the Wimbledon Common Rangers. However a Heritage Lottery Grant enabled the museum to be extended to both floors in 1999.

At least one hour should be allowed to see all the exhibits. 

Admission is free

Friends of Wimbledon Windmill

We are excited to launch the Windmill Museum Friends scheme.


We are a free museum and rely on donations and the hard work of our volunteers to remain open. The Friends scheme is an ideal way to more closely connect with and support the iconic Wimbledon Windmill Museum.


The Friends of Wimbledon Windmill scheme is open to families and individuals. Individual Friend’s membership is priced at £15/year and family membership at £20/year. 

When you join the Windmill Museum Friends scheme, you will receive a certificate. You will also be entitled to a free private tour of the Museum with one of our expert guides during the closed season (October to March).


If you would like to join us or would like some more information please contact us at,

The Museum is open at weekends and on Bank Holidays and we’re looking for a small time commitment of 3 hours a month. The Windmill has been the focal point of Wimbledon Common life for over two centuries. Why not join us and become a part of its future?  We would welcome anyone over 18 to join as a volunteer. Voluntary work is always a powerful component to include in a CV.If you would like to get involved or want to know more please contact us

If you would like to get more involved in the Wimbledon Common community, come and join us as a volunteer at the Windmill Museum. 

This is a terrific opportunity to meet with a wide range of visitors and engage with like minded and enthusiastic people who want the opportunity to give something back. We need volunteers to welcome visitors, help with our small shop and explain the history of the Windmill and wind power.

Please support Wimbledon Windmill

Wimbledon Windmill and the museum rely on visitor donations. Our income is severely depleted as we have followed government restrictions and have been closed to visitors throughout 2020 & 2021.

If you would like to support the Windmill, your donation will help support:

  • upkeep for our collections

  • building maintenance

  • our tours

  • learning activities.


You can help us to keep going by making a donation. If you would like to help us, you can donate securely online here 

with our thanks
