  • Very informative museum about the story of the German occupiers in room 1, and engaging information about the largest gun "Long Max" in the other room. Through TripAdvisor named third best museum of Belgium.

  • You will be by an enthusiastic Narrator (Guide) included in this visit. From the first minute you become a part of his trip in history. This museum tells the German side of this war, also gives interesting angles, such as the technique that was used, the psychology and ordinary life in the time of the great war. Really worth it.

  • It's a very nice war museum in flanders fields, not so far from Ypers, that explains history of the first world war around the region and history about the largest cannon in that time. You can even see the place where the cannon was located. The cannon itself is gone, but that doesn't mean that the remaining site isn't impressive to see. Also the cafeteria next to the museum is handy to drink a nice Belgium beer :) It's only 10 km from Ijzertoren Diksmuide, so it's also easy to go there for a visit.
  • Great museum with lots of interesting information.
  • Very nice and well documented war museum about the first world war. I have already visited the In Flanders Fields museum in Ieper, Talbothouse and Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917, but the long Max Museum delivers so much new information about the great war and the biggest gun in the world that you can't find elsewhere. Definitely a must to visit this war museum! Quiet location, 10 km from the Iron Tower and the dead gang in Diksmuide. Make sure the audio guide, this gives you so much more information. Count yet on a visit from 2 to 3 hours if you want to listen to all the stories and information to read carefully!
