I have visited Ypres and the museum several times but today was the first time since the displays have been altered. As soon as I walked in the repetitive "music" irritated and detracted from the exhibits. Within twenty minutes, I was desperate to leave as the "music" made me want to scream. I was also horrified at the shallow and... More

This site has changed much since its dramatic overhaul a number of years ago. It is now incredibly interactive and in some ways exhausting emotionally. Nonetheless, it is spectacular and gives more of a personal insight and touch to the area than other sites do. The poppy bracelet is a nice touch allowing for your access to the interactive exhibits... More

The museum is very informative and provides a comprehensive overview of the war in Flanders, as well as excellent exhibits about the weapons, uniforms and conditions in the field. Lots of excellent multi-media exhibits. The arrangement of exhibits is somewhat random, except for the introductory section, and it is quite crowded, but overall this is a great first stop in...

I have visited this museum before and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Since my last visit some 5 years ago it has only got better. Has a number of excellent interactive displays, and continues to be updated. If you visit allow 1.5 to 2 hours. I would go again.

We went on the 100th anniversary of the first day of the first battle of Ypres and found the museum to be superb . The exhibits were very good , the interactive displays were also very good . The shop had a wide range of souvenirs at a very reasonable price .I would definitely recommend anybody to visit

Good video footage, accounts, poetry, archive material. However, during busy periods ( which is often), it is difficult to access some of the exhibits ( the personal accounts of individuals, and the records of soldiers) It is though, one of the top museums in this area to visit.

Great exhibition of the horror of WWI. The images, films and artefacts of the struggle that the troops and local people had to endure during the 4 years of war are well displayed.

A comprehensive and modern museum that uses technology really well and in varied ways so you are guided in a way that holds your interest through the different aspects of this part of the WW1 Western Front and its timeline. Great value for 9 euros. Allow a minimum of 90 minutes I would say. 2 hours not too long if... More

There is a lot to read in the museum, that is my criticism, but then I'm a kinesthetic learner. The museum explains in detail what happened from 1914-18 when Ieper was the punchbag of the major powers. It will add to your visit to Flanders
