    From above, (22 floors) with splendid panorama on the flat landscape, you go down with on each floor a beautiful theme-expo a part of WWI.

    An absolute "must" to visit this Flemish peace monument and see what war causes, even though this was 100 years ago. When are we going to understand the slogan: "never again war"?

    We knew not that Nice in the iron Tower museum was a 1st WED. We are Dutch, and most Dutch people know (unfortunately) not much about WW 1 (probably because we were neutral?). The iron Tower and port were known because the somewhat unsavory parades earlier (what happy now is no longer the case), and we thought it would go only to the view from above and maybe a small exhibition on the tower itself. The entry was very nice, with the welcome movie with a very spicy old lady (which sadly recently passed away). Then take the elevator up, indeed beautiful view, but then so a fantastic exhibition on Wed, 1, focusing on the area around Diksmuide and the Yser River and the underwater. Floor after floor very interesting. Quite impressive the counterfeit underground dugouts and trenches with the terrifying sound of a soldier who inhale chlorine gas. A pity was that it was very hot in the Tower (while the outside was not so hot). Highly commendable museum and as far as we are concerned, one of the 3 top museums in Belgium m.b.t. World War I (along with In Flanders Fields and Passchendaele Experience).
