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.

Myself and others have nothing but admiration for what has been created here. The museum is situated in the "cloth hall" just off from the main square. There is an abundance of items to view, interactive informative attractions that educate the uninformed very well. We are really WW1 novices, therefore we spent quite a bit of time here all in...

This is a must see museum if you are visiting Ypres and the Great War Battlefields. It is located in a stunning building on the edge of the Market Square: it is modern, well laid out, interactive and provides excellent background and insight into WWI and what you will visit on a battlefields tour. Probably best to visit prior to... More

Without hesitation, this is the best museum I have ever visited. It is moving, balanced, well planned out, organized, creative, interactive, fascinating, educational. Lots of places to sit and rest. We were immersed in the museum for 4 hours without realizing the time. Children and adults will appreciate and learn about WWI. This museum should not be missed and should... More

Enjoyed is probably the wrong word as it is the Great War we are talking about here. Maybe informative, thought provoking and other such words would best describe this splendid museum. It is a must visit. Give yourself plenty of time as there is so much to hear, view, absorb etc.

This was actually my second visit to this museum. This time, we took our middle school children. They were fascinated by it, too. This museum does such a beautiful job of explaining the WWI struggles and really personalising the experiences of not only the soldiers, but everyone affected by the war including medical staff and displaced civilians. This is not... More

This exhibition grabs you by the throat immediately. Testimonies of people (acted out by actors) that lived through the war as a refugee, as an Allied soldier or as a German soldier make the exhibition extremely powerful. Pictures and models show the massive destruction caused by the continuous artillery fire between the trenches, on soldiers and on peoples' lives. As... More

This place was amazing, I am gutted I left it until near the end as this would of been an ideal place to start a battlefield tour of Flanders. It's also worth paying the extra to go up the bell tower as the views are breathtaking. It really was well worth the visit, the bands you get that make it... More

This is a large First World War museum where you log in with your details and as you go around the museum and activate some of the attractions they respond to your details. There is also the opportunity to climb up the clock/ bell tower (231steps) so you need to be fairly fit to achieve, but the view is magnificent.... More

This museum is located on the second floor of the Cloth Hall in Ypres. The Cloth Hall was completed in 1304 and served as the main market and warehouse for the textile industry of Ypres. During WW1 it was completely ruined by German artillery fire. After the end of WW1, the building was entirely reconstructed. This new exhibition was opened... More
