Nice place

This is not a huge museum, but it contains some lovely paintings, and other objects. If you visit the other museums nearby and have a ticket including this one, then you have nothing to lose and perhaps a bit to gain. The site dates back to the middle ages, probably as far back as the 13th century, when it was used to help the poor. Like other buildings in Ypres, it was quite badly damaged in World War I and was reconstructed in the succeeding years.

Very informative

Well worth a visit, they have a lift to the other level. Loads of displays and visuals shoing the story of the First World War. Gives a greater understanding of the battle fields. On the Ground Flood level there is an excellent cafe and shop.

Included with the ' In Flanders Fields' museum ticket, it's in a hall of a former almshouse. Flemish paintings, various ecclesiastical garments and household items. Quiet and quaint

Such an informative museum. You can lose so many hours walking around and reading all the history. A well worth visit!

A wonderful little museum
Jul 2017 • Couples
We came to this little diamond quite by chance. The cost of entry is just a few euros but it is worth the price for the materials on show inside. They have different Bishop seals going back to the 1300s and the rest of the artefacts and paintings equally old. The kind staff allowed us to take photos as it's doubtful that you will see equivalent artefacts elsewhere. Although the museum is small I'd return if I were fortunate to visit the wonderful town of Ieper once again.

Good collection of artworks
Jun 2017 • Solo
Originally founded as an alm house, a place of refuge for the poor, the building is now a museum. Unfortunately you won't find much information on the activities of the alm house or the poor. The museum is really a haphazard collection of paintings and various other pieces of art work.

The entry fee is cheap, so worth a detour considering almost everything in Ypres is war related.

Time to spare
Sep 2016
There was so much to see here and of course there was a gift shop and cafe too. We spent just over an hour but you could spend longer. There is a system in place where you log in on arrival and when you log in to displays then your own language is high lighted. Good place to take children who are old enough to see the extent of the damage form the first world war.

The museum is actually a casual collection of art that has been collected by the social welfare office through the ages. You will see splendid late medieval paintings that deserve to be shared with a wider audience. Some Enlightenment period paintings, as well as old furniture and religious artefacts are on display. Do not miss it... and above all, entry is free if you visited the In Flanders Fields Museum earlier.

The one place in Ypres that no visitor should overlook
Jun 2014 • Solo
I was fortunate to discover the Museum Godshuis Belle on my very first visit to Ypres, and it is now the first place that I seek out whenever I return. Conveniently located within less than five minutes walk of the Grote Markt, with a modest admission fee and no additional charge for photography (flash not permitted), this museum/art gallery houses a superb collection of sacred art dating back to 1420. The staff are friendly and helpful, and it is both a pleasure and a privilege to be able to spend time in this little gem of a museum.

Beautiful works of art

Having visited Flanders museum we were given a leaflet which allowed us free entry to this museum, well worth a visit. A very beautiful little chapel which contained lots of art and interesting furniture, stunning to look at, we spent a good hour looking round.
