In Flanders Fields Museum reviews
Beautiful building housing a museum that covers a dark period in human history. However it shows how great and brave individuals are. No wonder it changed peoples views when they went home more »
we revisited this, it takes a couple of hours and you could spend more time easily and effortlessly listening to the stories of individuals and groups. worth a stop more »
Truly fascinating experience. Well worth the €12 fee for the museum and the belfry. Incredible experience, give yourself 2 hours at the very least. Really well done and I found the Yorkshire Trench photos and model particularly interesting having just been there this morning. I have to add, the food and service in the cafe is superb. Very nice and helpful people work in the museum and the cafe
Had a great time here. A great way to start your visit to the area. Combination tickets with Ieper museum are available and the tourist information is next door, you exit through the cafe and tourist info office. Set on the centre of town in a spectacular building. Take advantage of the extra option of climbing the belfry, not only to see the bells and historic building but also the views from the top of the tower. Access to the tower is all done from the wristband you are lent for the duration of your visit which also opens the entrance gates and enables you to interact with displays in your language and personalises some of the interaction.
