A museum with a lot of information and stories about wo1. The museum uses modern multimedia equipment to tell the stories of some soldiers. From the museum you can climb up the stairs of the Belfort tower for 2 euros. Nice view from up there.

Excellent museum. Lots to see for adults and children alike. Moving pictures and photos of WWI and the local area at the time. Gives you the opportunity to see what actually happened at this time and to reflect on the past

The In Flanders Fields exhibition was stunning. Allow at least two hours and do the belfry climb if you can. I don't think the WW1 exhibition could have been improved on. It explained in chronological order the sequence of events leading up to when the war started. Being moving whilst not over sentimental but It still brought a tear to... More

Spent 2 hours here - could have taken longer. A lot to see and do, and the personalised poppy wristband is a great idea

Unfortunately the final display tracing any ancestors or family members killed during WW1 wasn't working. Apart from this last hiccup it was a very good inter-active museum experience. I would recommend a visit when in Ieper

Had three tired teenagers after a hectic few days and thought we would spend an hour here. However - the exhibition and explanation of WW1 was captivating. The personal stories and use of "real" people from the war ( from both sides) was a brilliant and moving way to tell the tale. Our favourite was the audiovisual telling of the... More

a vey modern museum with live interface to exhibits via a wristband that you scan as you proceed through the exhibits. For me somehow It misses the mark and depersonalises the war. I preferred the previous exhibition. I think that a visit to the Hooge crater museum although tiny by comparison has much more atmosphere. My advice would be to... More

Having been on a tour of Ypres and the Tyne Cott cemetery we finished off with a 2 hour visit to this museum. Was so very moved by the exhibits and the films that were shown. Plus we visited on 29th November 2014 and there was an exhibit showing all the names of all the people who died on 29th... More

What an amazing setting! The building is gorgeous. Displays were thought-provoking. We would have liked to see more military artifacts on display as well as personal stories of local people who lived during World War1.
