This museum brings in a very nice way personal stories with big history and links past and present in a natural way. Also, it doesn't give only the story of the winners but of both sides. Both are victims. And last but not least, even...More

A really moving but very informative museum telling the story of the town from start to finish during the Great War. A wonderful half way interval is available by climbing the tower to see this lovely town from hundreds of feet above the ground.

This is an excellent museum, telling the story from all perspectives, military and civilian, Entente and Central You could easily spend half a day here. As a tip, get the combo ticket for the Ypres museum next door.

The interactive nature of this exhibition in an amazing building holds the attention of teenagers for longer than expected. The open plan layout makes wandering the exhibits easy and avoiding busy spots.

Let's get the student bit out of way first; yes it's good they bother to go but the silly giggling and needless chatter detracts from the ability to fully absorb the brilliant displays and interactive features. Staff were super friendly. The wristband is clever allowing...More

The good reviews say all there is about the scope of content but I found it a little jumbled. There was no clear order to me, if that was important? In the 90 minutes we spent there I did not absorb or see everything, perhaps...More

We remember the original museum with lots of fabulous artifacts in glass cases and little interpretation. The museum then went all high tech, with few artifacts. This iteration has it just about right. A good balance of interpretation, artifacts and some excellent film. We stayed...More

Generally good museum offering an overview of WW1, with particlular attention paid to the events in the local area. For an extra 2 euro you can climb the bell tower - recommended - good views and a nice break 1/2 way through the museum. Toilets...More
