I visited the Museum a few years ago and was a bit reluctant to go round it again, but I was delighted to find that it had been completely made-over and was even more accessible and informative. Some of the content is, of course, harrowing, but it is important that the horrors of World War 1 particularly are never forgotten.... More

This museum is do well done and walks you through the story of the War as seen by various people of the time. Exhibits are well laid out and many are interactive. If it is z clear day do walk up the steps to the belfry where you will be rewarded with a 360 degree view of Ypres and the... More

The museum is located in the Cloth Building off the market square in Ypres. Be sure to set aside adequate time for a visit here, as here is much to see, with interactive exhibits, sound bites, etc. On entry, one is given a Poppy Bracelet which activates the personal story of one of 4 individuals.

On arrival we were given a wristband to enable you to listen to commentary at various exhibits. Alot of different exhibits, commentary from german & english forces, very authentic & thought prevoking. We also paid for a trip to the belfry......not a good idea if you dont like heights but fabulous views when you get there.

I am not sure there is anything I can add to what other's have said but you cannot visit Ypres without visiting here. The museum is really well laid out and tells the story of the First World War.

If you are very interested in history, this museum will tell you about what happen. Is really recommended to visit this museum Almost 100 years ago, the area around Ypres was the scene of dishes in the Flanders Fields and of the most devastating conflicts in history, now that the last witnesses have died, people, family and relatives to those...

We stopped off in Ypres on our way back from new year celebrations in Bruges, very impressed with this museum, we learned a lot about the First World War and I had tears in my eyes on more than one occasion. We were advised by the hotel receptionist to allow at least 2 hours here, we ended up staying until... More

I don't often visit museums, as I find them very time consuming if I am to view everything of interest in its entirety. However, the History of World War 1, (1914 - 1918 ) especially the ferocious trench warfare and battles which took place at THE FIELDS OF FLANDERS where thousands upon thousands of soldiers lost their lives fighting for...

This is not extensive by any means, but if you are their it will give great insight to the battles areas and the men that fought there.

At first I didn't want to visit the museum. It's not really "fun" to learn about the great war. Maybe I only joined to climb the belfry tower. Which was great. The stairs are in pirs. One up, one down and give great views over Ypres and surrounding. But I must say: the museum was "fun". Or at least very... More
