Haunting in the smock mill – the gripping audio tale in Myllymäki Windmill Park

Once upon a time there was a sleepy miller. He played violin in the bowels of the windmill, hoping that the melodies would give the mill mysterious powers to make the flour particularly fine. Once in a hundred years, melodies of the magical violin awakens the smock mill to life and now we get to hear the thrilling sounds of the past in the shadows of the windmill.

The fictional audio tale is written inspired by the history of the smock mill and ancient stories. It is suitable for children and the likeminded. The edge of the mill is decorated with fairy tale drawings and the entire story can also be read from the mill’s story board in either Finnish or English.
