The windmill from the 1930s is an exhibit of the Museum of Rural Life Before the Industrial Revolution in Jindřichovice pod Smrkem.

The windmill is designed to supply electricity to the facilities within the Museum and, concurrently, to the process of grain milling. The brick cylinder-shaped building has a diameter of 3.9 m and is 4.2 m high, and is built on stone foundations and plastered with mud plaster with an admixture of horse and cow dung, which was coated with a mixture of flour mash, clay and sand, and finally painted with lime mixed with cottage cheese and linseed oil to make it weather-resistant. The roof is conic-shaped, covered with shingles. The roof turbine originally served in a small windmill in Tošanovice near Frýdek-Místek; it was supplemented with equipment to put the turbine to operation. The milling part is completely assembled from preserved parts and is capable of milling grain.
