Since the innkeeper past away the collection was sold by his spouse in October 2014. The former outstanding collection and display is no more. It became just a normal Ypres Flemish pub. No need to go to see a military collection or to have a talk with the innkeeper about collecting WW1 artefacts; This is all past now...... over and... More

Superb and not well known, but well worth dropping in here. Not far from the Ramparts cemetery either and a great little cake shop opposite!

This is in the back of a bar -- and you have to have a beer first, or something -- just inside the Lille Gate and near the splendid Ramparts Cemetey. You walk through a dark and musty chamber, with dioramas beside you, and it's realistic and creepy. I liked the In Flanders Fields Museum, but got a very different... More

Small cemetery on Rose Coombes trail, and well worth a visit for the peace, tranquility and beautiful views over the lake. Watch the coots, moorhens and grebes on the moat, and enjoy looking round the graves.

We visited here in 2014 as a family of 4. My teenage kids enjoyed the history and it stimulated interest to visit the Newfoundland Memorial at nearby Beaumont Hamel, where we stayed at the Renshaw B&B , another historic site. We also stopped at the WW1 and WW2 memorial cemeteries to pay respect, and saw the big war museum at... More

This museum is built in the back yard of a pub by the town ramparts but do not let that put you off - it's indoors and very well done !. If you walk from the Menin gate to the ramparts cemetery you will cross over road where the museum is and it can accessed either by walking down steps... More

loads of atmosphere in a dark snug like bar. Mostly locals who seem a little bemused by the visitors. The museum is small but worth visiting,especially with a beer in hand
