    a fine site there in Ploegsteert. Everything was very friendly, the people we spoke and who work there and also the movie they run there is very educational. Now you see right where it all started.

    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.

    Museum very well thought for non fans of long visits. Lots of touch screens to view only what interests us. Synthetic and very well done approach. Exciting.

    This commemoration is very moving. He recounts vividly the battle of Flanders (and especially the Christmas Truce) during the first world war. Presentation with interactive and tactile screens, ideal for young people. Possibility to visit the football field of the truce between 2 trenches at 1 km from the Museum. JMB
