Wars never stand on their own.
They seem to possess tentacles
that grow almost imperceptibly,
until they get along elsewhere
and fire again into new conflicts.
We can't afford to be blind
for the forces that a hundred years ago
triggered the machinery of fate.
By doing so, we would be denying ourselves the possibility
to discover patterns in the past
that can help us learn lessons
for the present and the future.
The vlogs highlight some of the museum's themes. Use the videos in your lesson!
To enhance your visit to the museum, the educational team offers numerous activities according to the age of your group.
The offer provides opportunities to prepare your museum visit in class, or to look back on it afterwards. You can enrich the day of your visit with activities inside and outside the museum. A workshop is possible before or after your visit, and you can complete the day with a walk, or a guided bicycle or bus tour (with your own bikes or bus).
You can book the chosen activities together with your group visit, at least two weeks before your visit.
educational service & peace service
The educational department of the In Flanders Fields Museum and the Ypres' city department of peace would like to be a listening ear for those who want to set up a remembrance and/or peace-educational project, also across language or national borders.
Do you have an idea yourself about a possible trip, or do you prefer to work during your visit around a theme that was discussed at school? We will be happy to work out an adapted program by hearing you.
