  • Interesting interactive museum with information in several languages. 20min film introduction tells how the war began, progressed and ended with a date line. The floor map showed how and where the fro...  more »
  • Very nice historical summary of four years of war in this region. Good home. Illustration at the height of a Museum of the XXI century. Tiring for the visitor who wants to really see everything because requires a lot of Visual attention in a standing position. Chair available but too low to operate the touch screen. To see!

  • This isn't a Museum in the usual sense, it's an educational experience on the war. Not a lot of parts and exposed but memories clear and complete explanatory film, comp card embossed that evolves and that shows you the evolution of the conflict, clear touchscreens. In short, the best way to explain the war to young people today. A group visit: Plugstreet to start, battlefields and trenches then Flanders Fields to conclude. And don't forget to listen to The Last Post...

  • Small but very interesting museum in Ploegsteert explaining WW1 in a very accessible way, with a clear focus on the Battle of Mesen. Museum composed of several artefacts, maquettes and interactive panels which demonstrate the history, evolution, and experience of alost five years of Great War and its effect on civilians as well as soldiers from all parties. Local guide is possible, due to a small fee and bringing an extra dimension on the "Plugstreet Experience". The museum is a souterrain, next to a large Commonwealth Memorial and on the edge of what once was known as Ploegsteert Wood on the road from Ploegsteert to Mesen. It refers to a part of warfare in the Great War, known as "the mine wars".
  • Definitely worth the admission price. Well laid out with film, battle projections and personal interactive portals. The information is well laid out and describes the Great War in a understandable manner. Right next to a British Cemetary & Memorial. There is also a restaurant across the street and a tour guide who will take you out to the key locations in the immediate area. Enough here for a full day of immersion in the Great War.
  • Some interesting interactive maps and memorabilia here.
