This museum is full of posters, old weapons and facts. You get a cool wristband which is poppies and you can pay €1 to keep it.

This museum is really well done. The exhibits are well ordered, starting with an explanation of the socio-cultural environment of the pre-war years. The text accompanying the exhibits is good, and always included in French, Dutch, English and German. The English versions could at times be a bit iffy, but we are talking about some word choices that don't quite... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. The displays do a wonderful job of telling all sides of the story of the three Battles of Ieper, but what is really appealing is that they don't glamorize it, but rather focus on the sheer realities that were faced by hundreds of thousands here. There is a very nice blend of original artifacts as... More

Cost €9 each so not cheap but it was an amazing experience and well worth the visit. Amazing visual displays, films, little slide shows and exhibits. Also went up the tower which was very impressive.

Very informative and well organised museum giving a real feel of the war events in the area. Good to start here to get basic understanding before going on any battlefield tour

On a recent visit to Ypres we paid our first visit to In Flanders Field Museum. The Information in the museum and the exhibits make take you through the 1914-18 conflict and the individual battles for Ypres. The layout and atmosphere in the museum adds to the whole experience ending with the list of the fallen and the words of... More

We stayed in a hotel looking out at the museum in the square at Ypres. There is so much to see. There are several interactive exhibits which appeal to all ages. WW1 was a horrendous event in world history. The museum shows the horrors and the personal stories on many casualties and the shocking conditions the men had to endure... More
