The water mill in Ginučiai attracts both those who want to bathe and admire this protected object, and those who want to get acquainted with the peculiarities of the mill's technology.

Ginučiai water mill in the 19th century. in the second half it was built by the landowner Gimžauskas from Linkmenai, who invited several farmers to help. However, not everyone was satisfied with this mill, because the fields cultivated by the peasants were flooded through it, therefore the local courts of the peasants and Gimžauskas took place. After Gimžiauskas' death, the whole mill went to the village. During the war, many of the surrounding mills were burned or demolished, so here the milled grain people came from the most remote areas. The paintings of the folk artist Petras Gaižutis hanging on the walls in the premises of the mill tell about various stories and legends related to the mill. About 1968 due to the failure of the mill equipment, the mill stopped working, and in 1978. the mill was bought by the Ignalina tourist base and repaired. Currently, the mill is protected by the state and belongs to the Aukštaitija National Park Directorate, and a museum of equipment is located here.
