Hooge Crater Museum

This museum is housed in a restored chapel located where one of the fiercest battles of Ieper was fought and right opposite the ‘Hooge Crater Cemetery'. The private museum is highly recommended because of its life-sizes reconstructions of war scenes, its extensive collection of weapons, equipment and photos. You can also enjoy an impressive ‘trench art' collection in the cafeteria.

Sanctuary Wood Museum

At Hill 62, the highest point in Sanctuary Wood (Zillebeke), an impressive Canadian memorial dominates the area. 'Maple Avenue' - the road which now leads you into the trees - once formed part of the Canadian front line. It was the scene of fierce fighting in June 1916, but now offers peaceful views of the spires of Ieper. In the middle of the forest, a privately owned museum with trench remains can be visited. It houses an interesting collection of old war photos on glass plates.

Rank did not matter, everyone was and still is treated equally. Soldiers could borrow books, play the piano,… in short, become human again. The unique spirit can perhaps best be experienced in the newly renovated 'Upper Room' or Chapel. Next door, a life-sized album on 'Life Behind the Lines' and a 'Concert Party' take you back in time. Experience the true atmosphere of war years in this ‘Home away from Home’. The kettle is already
