Overview

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.

Everyone of all ages should visit. Staff are very helpful, an excellent and well laid out museum. Sadly didn't have time to try out the café.

Excellent telling of the stories of the conflict from many different perspectives. It was easy to follow the multi-lingual stories, spending time on those of most interest. The way the Christmas ceasefire was presented was very moving. Beautiful building too. Not sure the 'personal' journey...More

Allow at least 3 hours if you want to properly absorb the contents of this museum. It's well worth the visit. At the time we were there, there was a special exhibition of Frank Hurley's WWI photos.

My wife and I greatly enjoyed this exhibition if that is enjoyed is the right word to use as it is also a quite harrowing reminder of what our great grandfathers suffered. Certainly it is a 'Must See' exhibition if only to drive home the...More

Museum is located in the main square in Ypres and is dedicated to the 1st world war. It explains who was involved and has interactive displays that tell the personal stories of some of the people caught up in the terrible events. Highly recommend.

Very well presented museum on a terrible, senseless war and loss of life. I had read books about WWI, but always had trouble visualizing its expanse and locations. This museum laid it out well along with personal stories of participants. Allow at least two hours.

While history is well presented here in photos and words, what got me was the personal journals of soldiers from both sides. Really puts into perspective that there are no winners. I also really enjoyed the video mostly based on doctors and nurses commentary. Well...More

there is parking outside the museum in marked bays. There is a lift to the first floor where the display is and there is a very good café to sit and have a snack or something to eat and drink on the way out. It is a very... More
