This was an excellent museum which gave you a flavour (as best as one can) of how horrific it would have had to have been to be in the damp, soggy, dangerous, rat-infested trenches waiting for the enemy to come and kill you! It was...More

This was by far the best war museum we visited. Very informative, and very well done. Walk through the museum and see firearms, military equipment, uniforms, and the like. Outside are preserved trenches that transport you back 100 years. Absolutely amazing.

This museum offers surprising insight into what life was like at Paschendaele - well without the actual awful experience. You're given sights, sounds, smells of various gases, easy-to-absorb information, excellent displays, and then you head underground to see what life was like in the underground...More

This museum is outstanding. It chronicles the battles fought in WW1 around the region very well. The floor plan is excellent and they have a highly recommended short film on the Battle of Passchendale. The trench experience is outstanding. Well worth a visit.

what a truly inspirational, and enlightening museum. trenches so that you can experience the western front (in comfort), amzing artifacts, and stories of those that perished, and those that survived. If you are in the area, this is a must see.

We should have allowed at least half a day here to take in fully all the exhibits. We paid 13 Euros each that included the nearby visit to the dug out underneath the church foundations that has recently been drained. The museum is linked room...More

I had been meaning to bring a school group to this museum for a few years and finally got the chance yesterday. This far surpasses the In Flanders Fields museum for a number of reasons. Firstly, the traditional museum part of the experience is well...More
