To be truthful I didn't have a high expectation for this museum. After visiting several others I expected just more of the same. I was wrong! This is a truely great museum with multi media interaction (some of which still has some bugs) but in any case it is just that bit different. There are of course the usual displays... More

Make sure you climb the tower. Sombre history of the war. Lots of stories and displays. The video in the auditorium was really a waste.

If you read just one history of World War I, you are struck by the epic, tragic senselessness of that conflict. If you have to choose just one WWI museum to visit, this one should be a serious contender. The Medieval town of Ypres was practically Ground Zero in 1914 and was reduced, literally, to ashes and rubble. Reparation money... More

Interactive experience that conveys well a dark time in European History and its legacy. Great effort made to cater for all languages, and the gift shop has some worthwhile trinkets.

The museum was updated a couple of years ago for centenary. House in the Cloth Hall, which is a beautiful building. There are toilets and various sized lockers that can be used to store bags & coats. On paying entrance fee you have the option of paying a small extra fee for a poppy wrist band that allows you to... More

The drive in to Ypres is moving in itself as you pass various graveyards packed with the tell-tale White headstones to our valiant dead. The museum itself gives a real perspective on the horror of the war through oral testimony and various facts, figures, and recollections of the war. The artifacts provide further evidence of what was a shameless massacre... More

This is a must visit for those who wish to try to understand the full horror of WW1. Well worth the entrance fee and it deeply embroils you with the full inpact of war from all sides including civilians. Very well set out and will take up a minimum of 2 hours of your time to even begin to do... More

I tend to become a little bored after an hour or so in a museum but two hours flew by in Flanders Field Museum. So much to see and listen to and once you have your admittance bracelet you can leave and have lunch or a drink and return rested. If, as we are, you are over 65 there is... More

We spent a couple of hours at this very interesting museum, and would recommend a visit to anyone on a trip to Ypres following the local history. There is also an interesting ground floor, walk-in area with cafe, but we had spent so long in the museum we did not have time to linger long here.
