This museum is owned by the Schier family.  When Mr. Schier returned to his ruined property in 1919, it was criss-crossed with trenches, shell holes, and artifacts from the war.  Schier decided to leave the ground as it was and turn it into a museum.  He built a small building, started collecting artifacts.  He even began giving battlefield tours to the first groups of tourists in the 1920s, mostly soldiers and relatives of the dead.  In the interwar period, the museum was quite famous.  Herman Goering himself came to see it during the Second World War.  Today, it still contains the artifacts that Schier collected, and the trenches are still preserved.  It also has some very interesting 3-D viewing machines which date from the interwar period.  It is situated three miles east of Ieper on the road leading to the Hill 62 Canadian War Memorial and the Sanctuary Wood British cemetery. The museum does not have a website.

During WWII, Fort Breendonk was a Nazi conentration camp for political prisoners.  While it was not a death camp like the more famous concentration camps in the east of Europe, it was a place of torture and death for the Belgians who fell afoul of the Nazi regime during the war.  It is one of our most highly recommended visits to learn about the unspeakable acts committed by the Nazi regime.
