great museum with so many interesting displays and zones to explore. thought it wasn't going to be very good but I was mistaken. kept my interest and that of my son.
Brilliantly curated, great range of exhibits and experiences for the whole family. Starts off feeling like any other museum but gets better and better. If you're not good with enclosed spaces avoid the dugout experience.
Initially a little slow, and we didn't spend as much time looking at many of the exhibits which became a little repetitive. However overall the visit was a great educational experience and the latter part of the trip, learning about the trenches brings the horrors of the war much closer. We went out of our way to visit here and... 更多

In the park outside there are walks and bike trails and, if you plan ahead, you could make a day out of exploring the museum and outside... 更多
This museum gives a very good picture of the battles in Flanders. Their collections are huge and cover all sides of the war in this area during the Great War. And You may get a hint of how it was to live in dugouts, when visiting the rooms under ground.

You to experience the noise and even smells of the war! You can go down into the reconstructed dugouts which brings home the conditions the soldiers lived and fought... 更多
This museum was quite informative and well laid out. The different stories, uniforms, and artifacts from teh battles are displayed thoughtfully. When we went, there was also a special exhibition of Canadian invovement in Passendaele and WWI, including a focus on John McCrae who wrote In Flanders Fields.
