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

Visited this quirky museum yesterday and had the most amazing time. The peace beer is beautiful and the stone tankards very unique. Do not miss this fantastic place.

Another small private museum, with a good collection of items from the WW1 era. Next to the ramparts Cemetery and the pub next door is a must stop for a good Belgium beer.

We were walking around the city ramparts and came upon this place unexpectedly. Needing a drink on a hot day we went inside - the interior of the bar is very quirky with lots of interesting bits and pieces. While in the little garden area outside, we noticed there was a museum so decided to take a look. Very cheap... More

We were looking for something quick to do on a wet afternoon in Ypres. Had wanted to visit this museum for a while. You enter through a pub and get a token from a pleasant lady. The museum is out the back and is full if artefacts and interesting information. It was amazing how much they had for such a... More
