This is the best museum in the area. If you only have time to visit one museum in the area, make it this one. Not expensive.
Nice cafe opp cemetery small museum packed to the rafters with exhibits a must see on a main road watch for speeding traffic
The cafeteria has a good selection to eat and to drink and the staff is very friendly. The sandwiches are huge! The museum is well presented and easily understood. Do remember to present your discount voucher (if you got one at your B&B) before you pay and make sure it has been discounted. Do visit the cemetery in front and... More
We were impressed by this museum and our 12 year old enjoyed it more than some of the others. It has good life size dioramas of trench scenes and very good displays of artifacts, with some explanation of what you were seeing.

Lovely little museum that has lots of interesting and informative displays. Very moving when you see that they are still finding equipment and sadly bodies. It adds to the horror of how many were lost in this awful conflict. Nice tea room and interesting trench art.
On a bus route from Ypres and in easy walking distance of two other places (Birr crossroads cemetery and Hooghe open air museum). A good selection of things to look at and if you take these three places together you'll get your cultural hit. There's also a Menin road museum close by but it was shut.
Small but thoughtfully put together and very interesting. Lots of interesting displays and a huge amount of local WW1 memorabila - thoroughly recommended.
Once again this attraction appears to be under promoted. Once you visit you will see that it is much better organised than another nearby private museum and, much much cheaper. Value for money all round, great display and congratulations to the owners for putting so much effort in keeping the memories alive today.
It's not your standard modern 'experience' museum but more or less a privat collection of a lot of stuff. I found it very interesting. Don't forget to visit the neighboring site where heaps of stuff are just rusting away. Quite impressing.
