  • display cabinets (museum café)
  • dossier exhibition


In the battlefield area around Ypres, today, many tourists visit monuments, cemeteries and memorials, museums and landscape sites from the First World War.

Travelling to the Ypres Salient originates at the end of World War I. In the collection of In Flanders Fields Museum, numerous original photographs, souvenirs, travel brochures, posters and personal documents bear witness to this travelling. The museum itself also has an important role in it. This expo offers visitors a tangible view of more than a century of commemorative tourism.
