  • This place you should really visit on the west corner. This museum is adapted to modern times by quite a few movies. Very handsome.

  • This location is indeed unique: a 22-stöckiges Museum! Very many details about the course of the war in the 1st World War are shown. These are broken down by substantive and thematic aspects and prepared. However, climbing stairs is announced during the visit. Vivid manner the extreme living and survival conditions between 1914-18 shows the historically interested visitors. Absolutely recommended to anyone who is would like to inform about this time-based on facts!

  • I wasn't sure what to expect, but this museum packed a LOT of history into its design. You start with an elevator up to the top of the tower where you get a great view. Then you slowly work your way down about 20 floors, each with a themed display: Weapons, gas attacks, trenches, uniforms, etc. Very worth the visit.
  • Fantastic museum spread of 24 floors. Start at the top of the tower and work your way down
  • The whole tower is a museum, you can go to the top and have a superb view over the city. Admission is 8 euros per person and definitely worth it.
  • Best WW1 museum in belgium. 22 floors with possibility to smell chloor and mustardgas.
  • Very nicely done!!! Excellent for schools or people interested in history!
