Trip Planner: Europe / Belgium / Flanders / West Flanders Province / Ieper (Ypres) / In Flanders Fields Museum
Delve into the history of World War I and the fighting that took place in Belgium at In Flanders Fields Museum. Named for the famous poem "In Flanders Fields" by Canadian soldier John McCrae, the museum aims to bring the human experience of war to the forefront. The museum is on the second floor of the Cloth Hall, a building that was fittingly destroyed during the war and has been reconstructed. When you arrive, you'll receive a poppy bracelet loaded with four personal stories to guide you through the museum and give a face to the war. Through these individual accounts of life during war, personal items such as diary passages and historical narrative, you'll have the opportunity to see the war as a human experience.

This fascinating museum is really well done and the audio guide is easy to use and not too long, but with additional material for the bits you are really interested in. The staff are lovely...

Very disappointed during the visit. The actual field museum is half a floor with an audio tour which takes ages. When it becomes a little crowded people start queuing all over the exhibition. And...

This is the best museum I have ever visited in my life, now 81 years so far. It uses audio visual media with remarkable success. Fact, drama and emotion combine for a powerful experience. Expect to be moved. I wish all politicians took the time to visit and learn. Very worthwhile.
Awesome museum. One can easily spend more than 3h there. I recommend getting the audio guide (you can also plug in your own wired headphones) and keep in mind that the tower closes 1h before the museum itself.
