This museum is in my view easily the best war museum I have ever visited in France and Belgium, WWI and WWII included. A lot of thought went into this place. While there are plenty of displays showcasing weaponry and the equipment the soldiers of the warring parties had at their disposal, the strength of the museum are the individual accounts of soldiers, their officers, medical personnel, and civilians alike. These are offered and / or on display throughout the museum, often with the help of view screens that show re-enactments of their accounts. Very moving in particular was a large viewing area depicting the desolated views of the medical staff tasked with caring for the severely wounded, and coping with the never-ending misery this entails, all without any false pathos. I also appreciated the section and separate exhibition about the seemingly impossible task of thereconstruction of Ypres, which was all but flattened during the fierce shelling from both sides.

Great combination of history of the big events and personal stories of the participants of those. Modern presentations. Really moving! A must!

After 2 wonderful days visiting Flanders war sites we were excited to visit this recommended museum. We were 3 people and none of us could figure out the flow of the narrative or what the museum was trying to achieve . Overall we felt it was the most disappointing aspect of our visit .

Informative but it could've been much more. My experience was probably influenced by the unfriendly people at the front desk. This museum is interesting if you know nothing about WWI and have an hour to spare. The cafeteria however was a treat.

Disappointing experience, particularly as the old museum was so interesting and touching. My 11 year old son didn't understand any of it except for the 1 visual about the troops advancing. My daughter (16) was totally confused as nothing is in date order and felt lost and frustrated. I was only moved by the film where the war was described from the point of view of the red cross workers. None of us learnt anything, and I ended up teaching the kids what I already knew about our flemish history. Very, very disappointing!
