This is a small, privately run museum in Maldegem. It feels like the exhibits are a collector's hobby but they are still well laid out and informative. Don't miss the miniature world upstairs--WWII battles are laid out in miniature form. There is also a tea...More

Museum was ok, not the best but not the worst. Cost 12€ each to visit both the Polish and Canadian. Thought it may be bigger but was happy to contribute to a worth while museum.

Some friends and I visited this museum on 3rd February 2017, previous museum visits I have undertaken in France consist mainly of ramshackle objects covered in dust and dirt poorly displayed. This museum is quite the opposite, the time, love and dedication has resulted in...More

We have visited quite a number of private museums in the Flanders area over the years and this is definitely one of, if not the best that we have seen. This is a very moving private museum covering the parts of the Liberation of Europe...More

I'm not sure a visitor would remember that name specifically. I'd suggest contacting the museum directly. You can send them a message through Facebook it seems: facebookcom/CanadaPolandWarMuseum/
