The windmill dating back to the 19th century is now a listed building and serves as a museum. The museum exhibition consists of three parts situated on the ground floor and two upper floors. The spaces feature a permanent exhibition of the history of Rudice, mineralogy, speleology, iron working, metallurgy and mining.
The entrance hall is dedicated to the history of windmills and it is connected to the guide room, which is equipped with furniture evoking the atmosphere of living in Rudice in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The ten-minute 3D video projection is really worth seeing. It will take you to the inaccessible spaces of the caves of the Rudice Sinkhole (Rudické Propadání), which you have no other chance to see. The friendly guide will adjust the commentary according to the composition and interests of the visitors. The commentary for children is quite unusual here.
You will be astonished by the colourful varieties of quartz on the first floor. People who love beautiful crystalline forms are usually thrilled. The second floor is dedicated to speleology, the roots of which are closely connected with the area around Rudice. There is a detailed description of how the caves of the Rudice Sinkhole, the second-longest cave system in the Czech Republic (12 km), were researched.
In the close proximity of the mill, visit the geopark to see some rock samples from the Moravian Karst and Drahanská Highlands. There is also a tourist information centre in the museum, where kids can find one of the fairy-tale offices of the Kingdom of Krasík Snail.
