The museum depicts the logistical side, and the impact on the local population of WW1 from an interesting perspective. (Forced) participation of the local community under the German control is shown. The construction of the canon is depcited within the whole happening, and not just shown as a "fait divers". I absolutely recommend the audio guide (for just 2 euros extra), because it gives a lot more information than can be found otherwise. We spent about 2,5 hours in the museum and enjoyed a nice beer in the cafeteria afterwards.

The museum was extremely good. It gave a good look into the German side of the conflict. For the people who think it's just about a cannon don't worry. It offers a very detailed insight in the German army, the occupation and the various tactics with which the Germans tried to get the resources needed to continue the war and break the stalemate. The cannon is of course an important part, which it definitely deserves to be. My advice to any vistiors is to get there as soon as the museum opens up. If you are interested in it, you will need all the time you can get. Another piece of advice I got is to invest in the audio guide. It's only 2 euros more and adds a lot to the experience.

This museum comes highly recommended! We’ve visited Ypres and all the British front museums and attractions but Lange Max provides a great perspective of the German front and life in Belgium whilst occupied by Germany in WW1. Would recommend the audio guide. The facts and narrative about Lange Max are fascinating. For anyone interested in WW1 history - Visit!

Excellent visit today. We arrived 2 hours before opening as weren’t sure of opening hours. Local cafe rang owner who promptly turned up. He then gave us a personal tour of the museum and all its exhibits. He was very informative and all 10 of us enjoyed it well worth the visit. Thanks.

The museum comprises a few buildings some of which date to WW1. The main museum provides information about life on the German side of the line and about the impact of occupation on the population. The centre piece is the scale model of Lange Max, the large gun located nearby and whose site can be visited although we did not due to lack of time and the weather was not good. Tours of the museum are facilities by a audio system you can activate near multiple locations in the museum. Slightly smaller than we expected but worth a visit. We stopped off on our way back from Flanders to the ferry at Dunkirk.
