The windmill nowadays has been converted into a folklore museum set up in the miller's rooms. The Pomskizillious Museum, has a large private collection of toys from the nineteenth and twentieth century owned by Edwin and Susan Lowe. Its name originated from the text of imaginary creatures and nonsense verses of Edward Lear, who visited Gozo in 1866.
