Closed on Monday,s. This is the best privately owned museum in the region, if you want value for money buy the entry ticket with lunch, cost €11.50 for both. Lunch is a sandwich with a small beer, soft drink or coffee/tea

As part of the battlefield tours, this has got to be visited. Trenches still in place, empty shells left in situ 100 years on, debris and items from the era all still there. A very sad poignant place to visit

Real spoils of war adorn this museum, the Hooke Crater just next door, looked so innocent as it had been transformed by nature. A must see if visiting the area.

A few metere from our hotel. Well worth seeing. Very moving to go down some original trenches and to see the debris still left after the conflict.

Whilst on our Battlefield tour, we spent some time here. There is so much to take in and our guide gave us so much information which made us understand everything so much clearer than before. The vastness of what happened is brought to life when you can see Hooge's crater in reality. Everyone should see this and recognise what it meant.

Nice to see artefacts from all sides alongside each other. Some of the models seem archaic at first but interesting to see different uniforms. Good cafe, clean toilets and some parking.

From the death and destruction of the War, has arisen an oasis of friendliness, good food and drink and a Museum showing a fantastic collection of artefacts. The trenches at the back are not to be missed, they are excellent reconstructions.
Across the road is a cemetery reminding us of what this was all about.
There is so much to see both in and around the Museum and to me, this is a must see place.

I cannot imagine the noise and horrow this must have been for the men of both sides when the underground explosives went off that led to the creation of this crater. A good museum and a must visit site for anyone interested in the Battlefields of WW1

This is a fantastic museum, that needs to be visited to understand the misery, desperation, toil, gains, loses and hardship that everyone endured during WW1 in the area of Hooge. Some of the best diaramas I have ever seen, thousands of artifacts and explanatory notes to the battles over the 14 - 18 period. Lots of parking outside. Cafe is part of the museum. Over the road is the Hooge Cemetery. 100m away is part of the Hooge Crater and trench system, free to enter and an insight into the warfare that took place around Hooge.
