The Ypres region was the backdrop to on of the bloodiest battles in history, 100 years ago. Now the last witness have died too, the In Flanders Fields Museum is more than ever the gateway to the First World War in Flanders. The In Flanders Fields Museum confronts the visitor with the consequences of the Great War. Old and young are faced with life and death in the Ypres front region. The exhibition with touching video projects, unique sound fragments and the most up-to-date multimedia applications immerse you in the life at the front. each visitor also receives a poppy bracelet that enables him/her to discover four personal stories of 'Joe Public' in the Great War. By logging in you can meet your peers in the war, a century ago.

Visiting Ypres so went to the museum. It was very interesting and could have stayed longer but had left car on a parking meter. The only problem we had was the music which just carried on incessantly in the background and after a while became very annoying. The Museum is in the Cloth Hall which was ruined in the war... More

Pretty good little museum, more so when you realise the building was pretty much destroyed during the war. You get a wrist band that lets you access the museum and if you add your details at the top of the stairs, it helps out with the interactive bits. Pay the extra €2per person and climb the bell tower and then... More

Ypres itself is worth a visit and this museum, along with the Menin gate are a must see. Very good and interesting account of the battles of WWI and of course the memorials to the fallen

The museum has been carefully & respectfully curated and highlights the experiences of both those who served and the civilians who lived through the darkest days. It's an interactive exhibition that appeals to all age groups & does not require any prior knowledge of the war, but is not repetitive for those more familiar with events. The climb up the... More

Lots of audio visual aids tailored to individuals via armband. Thought provoking in how little we have learned from 100 years ago. Busy with school parties but big enough to avoid crushes. Highly recommended.

Set yourself about 3 hours to fully justify this wonderful museum. Atmospheric and emotive but an insight into the 3 battles of Ypres and how important it was for the Allies not to lose this strategically positioned town. Definitely well worth the Entrance fee.

Very atmospheric. Have been before, but they've upgraded it quite drastically. Never heard such hellish 'music' which goes on the whole time! I feel the film could be improved by omitting the running about.
