The Waregem visitor centre dedicated to World War I opened on 11 November 2017. There are two permanent exhibitions: the first looks at the role of the Americans in World War I and the second at the role of horses in the war. The two themes have strong Waregem connections, as the city is internationally famous for its Flanders Horse Event and the Flanders Field American Cemetery is located in Waregem. Thanks to photographs, film clips and audio files, authentic objects, an interactive quiz, and even a reconstructed horse hospital, you can discover some less familiar stories from the Great War. Waregem is situated between Kortrijk and Ghent in West Flanders.
