Must admit to have been rather disappointed with this museum.....there is so much to read and for someone with only a limited knowledge of the subject matter it is presented in rather a cumbersome fashion. However, the video presentations were extremely moving in their simplicity. Considering that there were several school groups of differing ages, I felt that several of... More

There is so much to read, watch and walk around to see. If you're doing this as a guided outing or even with a deadline, you will not see half of this museum. I think we took 3 hours ish and still didn't see it all. There is also a little (and I mean little) cafe downstairs when you've finished... More

A well organised visit with very interesting exhibits. Ideal for parties of school children to help their understanding of the Great War.

I believe there is much of interest here however the day we visited it was just too busy to allow for a proper look at the displays . The armband for access to audiovisuals and further info is a great idea but I was only able to use it once as there were always other people using with other people... More

An absolute cavern of information for everything that went on in Ypres between 1914 and 1918. Fascinating exhibits and the interactive bands are great for people who want to really get a feel for the lives of different people around at the time. One thing you must do is go to the top of the Cloth Hall...I am terrified of... More

We spent over two hours in this museum. This building was completely destroyed and rebuilt as it is today. As a monument to the fallen soldiers. So much to do and see at this museum. This is a must visit place if in the area.

There is no way you can not go to this museum, the building which house s the museum was completely destroyed during ww1,by going into the museum will benefit all who go in. I thought I knew enough about the war, turns out I didnt know much, if you go to Ypres you really cant afford not to go to... More

This museum is full of artefacts showing both the reality of war and the lives of those who lived through it. It is both informative and thought provoking. Sad - yes but not overwhelming. We visited after watching the armistice day commemorations on 11th November 2014, 100 years after the outbreak of WW1 and it was a fitting end to... More

Two extraordinary video installations as well as masses of information. Although taking lots in, I didn't come away exhausted -- which has happened at some other museums -- even if good!

We went there on the 11/11/14 afer watching the wreath laying at the gate it was so moving that when we entered the museum it was like a trip back in time. The vidio stories of the individuals not only made you feel how bad it was for them but I felt as if I was part of the story.... More
