Owner description: 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.

This is a really impressive museum and sets out the ground well for any subsequent tour of the battle fields. Visited with two children aged 10 and 12 with both taking a great deal from it. Def recommend.

An amazing, moving and fascinating museum.
It really brought the First World War to life, in the same way WW2 often is.
The displays, information, film and the concept is first class.

I would recommend going early!

We visited this museum with Belgian friends. This is a 1st class museum...everything is well done. The background music is so appropriate and sets the mood of your visit. The short film about the Silent Night Truce is touching but the best film is about the British doctor and nurses (sisters). This should not be missed!! The museum is Interactive and keeps you engaged during your entire visit. Will definitely try and visit again.

This museum really tells you about the World War I battles (of which there were five around the city of Ypres) from the soldiers' point of view, not the generals. There were numerous videos of actors portraying wounded soldiers, nurses, doctors, etc. talking about the horrors of war. I found it rather depressing which, I suspect, was the goal of the museum creators. Immediately outside the museum was a carnival. Quite a bizarre day. If you would like to learn that "war is hell" this is the museum for you. If you already knew, also knew that sometimes it's the only solution, and don't need a refresher course, you might look elsewhere.

One of the must see museums if you're in Belgium. Well laid out and fairly interactive to keep the interest of teens! You start by entering your name, age and home area so the exhibits are interactively tailored to your context (to a limited degree). You can get a profile of your visit emailed to you afterwards! You emerge realising the significance of what happened in Thr area and in Northern Europe in general, if you weren't aware of this before your visit. Follow up with a vivid to to the Menin gate short walk away and to a war cemetery if you have time.
