My great-grandfather, Frederick, was killed at Passchendaele so visiting this museum was a must for me.
I found it to be really informative and great value for money. You need to allow a good hour to see it all including the trench and dugout experiences. A number of the displays are interactive including one where you can smell simulations of the various types of gas used on the Western Front: [Chlorine, Phosgene and Mustard Gas].
Although I realise most people visiting Flanders have their own transport, the museum can be easily reached from Ypres by public transport [Bus 94, 2 euros E.W.] as well.
There are a number of nice little bars in the town too where you can have a drink or get a bite to eat.
