This really is a wonderful museum and really should not be missed. When you buy your ticket you are given a card with a name on it that you can put into interactive booths so that you can see the "ups and downs"of that individual. The museum shows the war chronologically and with thema's. The aidiovisual area of no-mans land really brings you up sharp about just how awful it was there in the Ieper Salient so much more than any book can. personal belongings, weapons, equipment and scale modles all help to show the horror that was this war, but also to bring into our thoughts wars across the world today.

Address: Grote Markt 34
Directions: The museum is situated on the upper floor of the Cloth Hall (Lakenhalle) in the centre of Ieper
