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.

One of the best Musuems I have visited. It provides a well balanced and accurate account of the service and sacrifice of all those who fought in Flanders in World War I.

i have never seen so many books on WWi and each battle that took place in Flanders. a very spacious shop next to the museum and a very convenient coffee/restaurant, in this amazing building, fully reconstructed after its bombing

The IFF museum is worth a visit for any Battlefield Tourist. It neatly, soberly and very interestingly pieces together the history of, and developments through WW1. As an interesting addition, the 'ticket' is an RFID bracelet that you can personalise with your details. This you...More

Very interesting with lots of interactive exhibits. Easy to find in the town centre. Was a lot larger than I expected. You can easily spend a few hours here.
