American Wind Power Center

En Español

The largest windmill museum in the world,
the American Wind Power Center,
showcases these beautifully restored
structures in a unique Lubbock experience.

Visit the Museum

The windmill is often a forgotten structure, only glimpsed in the background of old photographs. But in fact the windmills of past days were essential in providing early settlers with the running water that they desperately needed to survive. Founders of the American Wind Power Center saw the need to preserve these relics to give a real glimpse into one of the West’s most prominent architectural features.

What began as a smaller project to preserve these historically significant artifacts, has grown into much more at the American Wind Power Center. Now, Lubbock visitors can explore 28 acres of city park dedicated to more than 170  rare and fully restored windmills. Hand pumps, models, photographs and other windmill artifacts also call the museum home.
