Overview
More
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 very modern museum which presents the saddeness of WW1 in a sensitive way with accounts from different nationalities and ages. Very evocative it captures the imagination but is very factual in the presentation of what happened and when.

Overall the museum was ok but I was a little disappointed. The whole ethos of the Flanders Fields experience is highly emotional and thought provoking. Whilst the electronic displays were good, to me it lacked the hands-on approach of touchy feely. In my opinion there...More

If you visit Ypres, then this is a must see museum. So much to see and to take in and to reflect. A lot of interactive elements as well as films to watch. The personalised wristbands are a good idea. Allow at least 2 hours...More

If you only visit one WW1 museum perhaps this should be the one (although the Albert one is a very different experience and worth seeing too!) Large museum, spacious even if busy. Some interactive sections. Some video screenings and audio from different perspectives to help...More

This excellent museum contained masses of information. There were good displays, interesting videos and artefacts. It brought a large degree of reality to the horrors to both military and civilian populations in WW1. It was well worthwhile, we could have spent more time here.

This museum in the middle of Ypres is full of WW1 memorabilia and interactive presentations. The many interactive presentations that show the contrast between present day Flanders and the war torn country after WW1 were particularly informative and chilling in their differences. This museum needs...More

Although totally rebuilt after WW1 it is such an authentic experience. Stunning building and square and museum is very interesting. Good 1-2 hours. Cafe in building is very good.

Very detailed and interactive exhibition. Plenty of places to sit while you watch the documentaries. The temporary archaeological exhibition is a masterpiece. Housed in the most beautiful building. Excellent cafe and shop.
