“A really interesting and well thought out museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

We came here after Tyne Cot cemetery having seen an advertisement for the museum; I'm so pleased we took the trouble.

The museum is much bigger than it looks from the outside, and it's set in a wonderful peaceful park.

The exhibits are spot-on, and the information is just right - not too heavy but enough to be absorbing. It was nice to see the focus on the multi-national aspects of those who fought.

The trenches and dugout experience was really good and is well presented.

Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area, especially so if touring the WW1 and WW2 sites that are in the region.

“Interesting Place to Spend an Hour or So”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

An extremely well thought out museum, which includes recreated bunkers and trenches. Set in lovely grounds which you can also walk round.

Very interesting exhibits, and well worth the 7.5 euros it cost to get in.

“outstanding!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

Wonderful exposition of the war, from all sides! See the German and the Allied points of view and artifacts! Only problem--no book about the museum. It has not been open long but it is well worth any fee and I hope they soon have more information to take home.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

Better than the Ypres In Flanders Fields museum - especially for youngsters as recreated bunkers & trenches to explore. But also masses of educational/information including scratch&sniff gas attack identification.

“Excellent presentation of difficult stuff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

I hope that the Brits who are putting together commemoration exhibits for the centenary of the start of WW1 do as well as the Belgian people. We have spent 4 days here and have not been disappointed or unmoved by the museums and exhibits. Passchendale, probably the most senseless waste of life in WW1, is such a special place to visit.
