The Cloth Hall, the only building not totally destroyed and flattened by 4-years' bombardment is now home to a very well organized civic museum which, in several languages, tells the story of Ieper's defence and ultimate survival. Try climbing o the top of the bell-tower - at 210 steps, it's a climb... but one worth making - to see Ieper... More

Sadly what should have been the pinnacle of our Battlefields Tour, turned out to be a great disappointment. We were members of the Scottish War Blinded, and therefore the tour organisers should have looked into the layout of this museum before having us pay 14 Euros to get in to see nothing. The floor was uneven, we could not see... More

An excellent museum that is very informative and has used several different approaches to deliver the information. I particularly liked the 3D clips where actors represented soldiers from different countries; their stories brought a personal perspective to it all. Visiting the museum was a very moving experience. Make sure you pay the extra 2 Euros to climb the bell tower,... More

If you are interested in history and/or learning about what happened in Flanders during WW1, then you MUST visit this museum. It is not overwhelmingly large but it is amazing in how it lets you learn about the war from the perspective of those who were living in the area and especially from the soldiers who fought in it.

The Museum has been ambitious in what it wants to show. As you walk around you are met with interactive information alongside the exhibition. There was a lot of information about all of the armies involved and some excellent artefacts on show. The short film mapping the battlefields over today's landscape was really informative and helped us understand where battles... More

Using so many different ways of presentation, the guest gets an accurate and moving idea of the battles and conditions experienced by the soldiers of WW1 We had about 2 hours in there and it was no where near enough time to see it all, when they said it was closing we could not say we the time had gone....

Once again more than I expected and so detailed with Small Theatres and Limitless Information mostly detailing the Belgian Peoples plight and the Horrors they endured...took me 3 Hours and Visited the Bell Tower and Roof with amazing Views of Ypres, Churches and the Menin Gate....Highly recommend this Tour and the Souvenir Shop is Cheaper than the Local shops. Lifts... More

I don't know why I always expect a museum to be dull with only multiple wall-hangings. This was wonderfully done. Multi-media, with short videos, some in 3d, and some where war reenactors speak right to you. Actual weapons, guns, uniforms, medical equipment adds character and credibility. The carnage here at Flanders Field In WWI is hard to fathom, but this... More

Forget about what you thought you learned from your high school history books - this is as real as it ever gets - at least for a civilian. Through interactive computer feeds, movies, and actual bones and bayonets, this large presentation area weaves a story of the real horror of war. It may be wise for some people to take... More
