The Ypres region was the backdrop to one of the bloodiest battles in history, almost 100 years ago. Now the last witnesses have died too, the In Flanders Fields is more than ever the gateway to the First World War in Flanders . The renovated In Flanders Fields Museum faces the visitor with the consequences of the Great War. It confronts young and old with life and death in the Ypres front region. The completely new exhibition with poignant video projections, unique sound bytes and state-of-the-art multimedia applications immerse you in the front life. Each visitor is also given a poppy bracelet which enables him/her to discover four personal stories of ‘ordinary Joes’ in the Great War. By logging in you get in touch with your peers in the war a century ago.
