We were badly in need of a coffee, so sat outside and watched the world drive by on the cobbles! From memory this where the "Ypres Times" WW1 newspaper was produced! Whilst there it's worth taking the short walk to the side into the memorial garden and the little cemetary in it's quiet setting overlooking the canal!

I visited this museum with my 12 yr old son, a visit we both really enjoyed. To access this museum is slightly unusual, entering a bar from where the bar lady takes through to the museum having paid your 3 euro's (children free)! Once in the museum, we were really surprised, you walk through a number a trench scenes, scenes... More

Have a beer at the bar and you get a token for the museum, which consists of a series of dioramas of life in the trenches. It's dark and musty and eerie-- and, for me, better than the In Flanders Fields Museum. You won't learn the history of the war, but the creepy feeling is unique. The eyes of the... More

The museum is behind a pub where the service is rude and slow. The pub is scruffy and the menu is very poor

Small private museum but was a good one to do with the evening walk down to Ramparts Cemetery ... friendly in the bar ... The memorable feature was the size of the fake rats ! Pretty horrid picture too of them strung up dead in WW1 ...

A nice museum with interesting exhibits, about as near as you may get to being in the trenches... but not :) It took us a while to work out you had to go in through the attached bar, but it was only a few euros and well worth a visit.

Go for the museum, stay for the peace beer! Staff in the bar very friendly and welcoming. The museum is small but informative and a bit quirky. The peace beer is fantastic. If they were selling it in kegs my kids would have lost their seats home. Looking forward to a repeat visit. Did I mention to try the beer?
