De Middelste Molen is an organisation run by volunteers who receive no payment.
The main aim of the board of the Foundation is preserving De Middelste Molen with its historical mill and museum as industrial and cultural heritage in all aspects.
Furthermore, it is, according to the board of the foundation, extremely important to go on promoting DMM with its touristic and educational value to the region.
De Middelste Molen is open to the public from Wednesday to Saturday from 10.00- 16.00 hours. During the high season we are also open on Tuesdays.
Visitors, parties or individuals are received in our reception room where a short film is shown about papermaking in general and about De Middelste Molen in particular. After that a volunteer takes visitors on a guided tour along the brook, the waterwheel and the historical papermachine.
The papermachine is running dependent on the number of orders there are. During the tour the processing of hand-made paper is shown and interested visitors can give it a try, too.
In our papershop a complete range can be seen of all kinds of qualities and formats of paper, which are produced here by machine or by hand.
There are also workshops by artists cooperating with DMM. During these workshops, in our Lex Lokaal (Lex Studio), the basics of working in a creative way with pulp and paper using all kinds of techniques is shown.
Sometimes big art manifestations of more than one day are held here. Various artists from home and abroad, over the years, have worked in and around the mill using paper and pulp.
The financial administration is carried out in-house. A monthly financial report is prepared for the board.
A number of supported services (including software) are purchased from AW Accountants & Adviseurs in Brummen.
The financial statements are compiled by AW Accountants & Adviseurs on the basis of data supplied by De Middelste Molen.
