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.

A well organised museum with interactive elements that helped to keep the children's interest in an important topic. They loved using their poppy bracelets to find out information. The films and dialogues from individual characters helped to make it relevant and real for children and adults alike. It also showed how Ieper was rebuilt after the devastation of the wars.... More

Visited on a wet weekday morning, entrance fee only 9 euro, great modern museum with some spectacular displays and exhibits, the short films showing throughout the museum give a real flavour to the conditions endured by the armies and citizens alike during 1914-18, well worth a visit and loacted within the central square in Ieper.

This museum was really excellent. Its location in the reconstructed Cloth Hall (which also houses the tourist office) was genius. The artifacts and displays telling the story of WW1 were really well done. There was so much to look at and read about that you should make sure you allow enough time to see it all. When I visited there... More

An excellent museum, giving a great overview of the World War I horrors. Include the extra couple of Euros to go up the belfry - great views of the city and surrounds.

Driving into Leper (once known as Ypres) it is hard to imagine all of the fighting & devastation that occurred. But once you visit this museum you see just how much destruction took place. It is quite mind blowing. There are displays from both sides of the war and many videos you can watch. There are interactive options you can... More
