Having been a number of times over the years and seen the museum evolve into its present form, I found it was different but still worth a visit. There is lots to see and video presentations are mixed with artifacts. Individual stories are told in an attractive manner that holds your attention. The emphasis is on the futility of war... More

The Flanders Field Museum located in the Cloth Hall on the square in Ypres (Ieper), Belgium was renovated sometime after 2012 when we first visited it. Everything is computerized now and you certainly don’t get a feeling for The Great War like you did with the old museum. (See my 2012 review if you want to know what it used... More

Not just a war memorial museum but one that uses electronic technology to bring about points of history so you get the feeling of being there & having taken part in it..

A great museum which drives home the horrors of World War 1. This is a must visit when you attend Ypres. If you are brave enough take the steps to the top of the bell tower for a spectacular view.

Well worth a visit. You can be lost for hours immersed in the history. Full of interactive images,plenty of military and other memorabilia and stories, it can be a very emotive and informative experience.

Be sure to visit this museum when you are here. It gives you something all the other museums in the area don't; a deeper understanding of the social context of WWI and why so many men went off to be part of it and give their lives.

Wonderfully laid out within the Cloth Hall the Flanders Field Museum is one of the best places to start a World War 1 battlefield tour. One word of warning though, allow yourself a lot of time as there is so much to see, read and interact. Wonderful idea to provide each visitor their own poppy bracelet to activate certain aspects...

I wasn't sure what to expect from this, but I wasn't in the least dissapointed. The museum takes you through the story of WWI from the start to finish - with very well thought out and concise storyboards and displays. We also took the option to go up the Bell Tower, which was worth it; and once at the top,... More

Worth a few hours to wander around before you embark on your battlefield tour. The interactive exhibits allowed individual exploration and worked very well and was good value for money.
