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...more

We'd already been early in the year to visit the museum and was very impressed by the content. It's well thought out and treats the subject with clarity so when family came for a visit we suggested visiting it again.

Well worth the time to visit, it might seem to be a bit expensive but there is so much to see and so much information on show about the history of the town and surrounding area routing the first World War
This is excellent. The exhibits are ordered sequentially and it is difficult to pick a standout but the one that sticks in my mind most is the audio visual display of the Christmas truce. A must see [like most the WW1 visits in Flanders].

The museum, which is huge, tells the whole sorry story of WWI in Flanders from 1914 to 1918. It uses every modern trick in the museum armoury to keep you thoroughly engaged: video, dioramas, 'hologram' actors, music, sounds - a real experiential trip through time.
