Read varying reports on Hill 62, so unsure wether to visit. Took a chance and for 8 euro's it was money well spent. Lots of relics and the trenches give you a feel of what it was like 100 years ago. Also has new tea room if refreshments required. Understand it is under new management so believe the site may... 更多
Lots of show cases full of artifacts and pictures. Completely uncensored ' What the Butler saw' machines with gruesome pictures from the time. This is one of the original museums and sticks to the old format. There are original preserved trenches out the back, whether they were front line or communication or fakes I will leave to others but you... 更多
The museum is a slightly quirky private collection, but very different from all others in the area. I wish I had more time for the viewing boxes ( not suitable for young children) but this was a war & nothing is sanitised on the reality of this time. Walking around the trench complex was very moving, we could also hear... 更多
One can read about history, but to actually be able to go and experience it is something completely different. Here the trenches have been left just as they had been in WW1. No refurbishment needed - this IS how it was! To walk the trenches and imagine the life, and death, down there is very sobering. The craters left by... 更多
This Museum has been expanded since our visit in May of 2012 (see review). Otherwise, it is much the same as it was then and well worth driving a little way into the countryside to see it. The trenches are much like I imagine they were during the Great War and are the most realistic we've seen on our tour... 更多
I'm fortunate to have visited much of Belgian Flanders. Surprisingly, I hadn't visited the Santuary Wood/Hill 62 Museum until my most recent visit on Tuesday 21 April 2015. The weather was beautiful. What I tend to do is visit just one museum each visit. I've decided to visit Hooge Crater Museum next time and the new Plugstreet Experience some other... 更多
Very disappointed with the museum, not all the memorabilia is relevant to the exhibition itself - a mixture of various uniforms/weapons etc from different wars and eras claiming to be WW1 and a distinct lack of information about the exhibits and trenches. Also the rooms feel very faded and dusty, not a lot of care seems to have been invested... 更多
The stereo pictures are amazing but I was told that the trenches are not real, they were dug by the Belgians themselves as tourist attractions? They certainly don't have the usual A-frames that British dugouts would have had.
Whilst I agree with some of the negative comment posted by others relating to this museum, I would strongly argue that it is still worth the effort. The museum is clearly under funded, and the mannequins are outrageous, laughable and insulting - the machine gunner is clearly female and wearing lipstick, whilst another seems to have pieces of carpet in... 更多
Entry is through a pretty tacky area and the cost is high. The museum is haphazard and I had no real feel that much had been spent on it. Very disappointing The trenches, on the other hand, have a good authentic feel to them. No-one knows whether they are really in the true position, but they certainly give you a... 更多
This is strange collection of items put together as a museum. Its not the best museum in the area. The trenches are worth a visit, as while they my not be the originals they give a good feel for what it must have been like in the trenches. These is one of the "go and make your own mind up"... 更多
An opportunity to see what life in the trenches must have been like. Plenty of artefacts in the museum and the 3D photos pull no punches about the horrors of war.
