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.

I went to visit the Museum just on Easter Monday morning. I only planned to stay an hour but all the exhibits were fascinating.

A very interesting visit, with just enough technology that has been really well used. It is well worth the extra 2 euros to climb the 231 claustrophobic extra steps up the tower. The view was amazing and it is the only way to see the bells. I did think that they had perhaps missed a trick at the top of... More

We were a party of grandparents (70 years), parents (45'ish years) and grandchildren (11 - 6 years). The museum was suitable for us all. It is spaciously laid out in a large building with a wealth of information and artifacts. The displays are excellent and cover every aspect of this most dreadful part of the war. It is excellent value... More

You can have the greatest museum in the world but if you allow visitors to undermine everything you have built to showcase to your visitors you may as well shut the doors. This was to to be a key visit for myself and son on our journey to pay respect to the British soldiers who died defending this town. As... More

The museum is very comprehensive. It is family friendly and the exhibits are very well laid out. There are lots of artifacts and a good explanation of the history.

This spacious museum is situated in the old cloth hall, rebuilt after its total devastation in the Great War. Adult entrance is 9 euros and is worth every penny. We spent nearly 3 hours digesting the informative displays and video projections, all in multiple languages, including English.

The museum is located in the Centre of Ypres, close to the City hall. This fantastic museum brings you back to the period 1914-17 of European history. You will learn in depth but in an enjoyable manner all the details: the troops, the civil life, the impact, ... However, you should prepare yourself to one of the most devastating wars... More

Well worth a visit to anyone interested in the local history of WW1. Second visit in 4 years. More interactive and and less artefacts but gives a good impression of the horrors of war in that time. Most people visiting have connections with men and women who served in their area; many making the unlimited sacrifice.

An absolute must if you have come to Ypres to learn more about it's tragic history but subsequent rise to beauty. Told in such an accessible manor... so poignant, bring a tissue. Excellent.
