Well worth a visit, they have a lift to the other level. Loads of displays and visuals shoing the story of the First World War. Gives a greater understanding of the battle fields. On the Ground Flood level there is an excellent cafe and shop.

The museum is actually a casual collection of art that has been collected by the social welfare office through the ages. You will see splendid late medieval paintings that deserve to be shared with a wider audience. Some Enlightenment period paintings, as well as old...More

Having visited Flanders museum we were given a leaflet which allowed us free entry to this museum, well worth a visit. A very beautiful little chapel which contained lots of art and interesting furniture, stunning to look at, we spent a good hour looking round.
