The In Flanders Fields Museum tells the historic story of the First World War in the West Flemish front region. It narrates the invasion of Belgium and the first months of the war of movements, and the subsequent four years of trench warfare in the Westhoek, from the beach of Nieuwpoort to the Lys. And the museum continues about the end of the war and about the continuous commemoration since then, a war that never ends, now almost a century later. The Museum focusses on the human experience in the war by ways of personal testimonials, as this brings the public into close contact with this subject. It also presents the landscape of the war as one of the last tangible witnesses of the war history. Tangibility that makes encounters possible. This is why the museum route also allows for a visit of the Belfry… In January 2021 a series of innovations were introduced, including an audio track full of experience for adults and children, 3 new films, new character stations and new uniform displays.
