Overview

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 great museum that will take you a minimum of 2 hours. The interactive wristbands are a great feature. The variety of media keeps you engaged. The only negative was that some of the exhibit labels had very small writing which made them difficult to...More

A well laid out museum, which uses lots of different ways to tell the story of the war in Flanders. I found it really insightful to see material about the impact on the Belgian civilian population and how many became refugees in other countries until...More

The Cloth Hall in which this museum is based rose from the rubble of the Great War. Now it's state-of-the-art testimony to the sacrifice and horror of the troops and people. A must see.

This museum is absolutely fantastic and well worth the money. The displays are excellent and at times quite harrowing as the true atrocities of war are displayed. When visiting ensure that you give yourself enough time to be able to read the displays and watch...More

Very short. We finished before the actual teachers and weren't allowed into an area for almost an hour and the interactions were often closed or very bland.
