Owner description: 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 remarkable place, which shows a true respect to our lost generation - for everyone who lost relatives in this dreadful war.

The extensive details of the displays, the personal stories of people who experienced WW I, the animated characters all made this museum an excellent lesson to help people of all nationalities understand the terrible human costs of war. More people need to see this story in reality.

This is a fabulous museum with the information given and enough interactive functions to make this a great experience. Myself and the rest of my friends spent about 4 hours there and that was easy to do. It is a great museum and it is a very moving experience not just on the war, but what poor ole Belgium endured just because the Germans wanted access to their coast - this meat in the sandwich got pulverised in a world war that started because one person was murdered; go figure.

We visited this one afternoon. Having come from the museums at Albert and Peronne in France it was interesting to see the Belgian perspective on the First World War. We tend to forget that it was the invasion of their country that took the UK and it's empire into that conflict, and that Belgium was heavily involved and lost many of it's own population, and infrastructure. This balances this concept without detracting from the contribution other nations made in the defence and eventual liberation of Belgium. Well worth a visit if you are interested in this part of history or not.

A beautifully curated museum with a sense of bringing personal stories and moving experiences into the museum experience. Installed in a stunning recreation of the original Cloth Hall this is a moving and informative experience.
While Australia served under the British Flag - I felt there could have been a little more presence of the Australian contribution to WW1
Moving and the direct to camera biographies Stella
Don't miss it.
