The spinnenkop of the Netherlands Open Air Museum in Arnhem is a small drainage mill originally located near Gorredijk, Friesland, Netherlands. It is a hollow post windmill that has been restored to working order.
The mill was built around 1800 and later moved to Gorredijk. Next to draining the polder it got a secondary use from 1886 onwards to inundate the local ice skating ring. It was named Molen van Posthuman after its owner or named after the polder it drained called Mountsjelân . In 1922 it became superfluous when a kerosene-engine powered pumping station was built. The mill was then dismantled and given to the Dutch Open Air Museum where it was rebuilt in 1925.
