Sanctuary Wood Museum, Bruges Reviews - Write a Review

  • Very interesting and atmospheric living history museum where you can walk around actual trenches from the first world war and see the shell craters. It's great for children to get a idea of what it was like in the war for soldiers. The museum itself has an esoteric mixture of war items which are haphazardly labelled as well as a fun and informative set of photo viewing boxes.

  • The trenches are stunning, with some imagination and prior research you can really see what it was like and how it was all made. it lacked clear information about the site and it's history, but on a positive note, I have never seen to many historical artefacts in one place, if you know what you're looking at they really do have everything and a lot of it! Even strewn across the garden area at the back of the museum.. disorganised and lacks clear information. But still fascinating and worth visiting.

  • Very good place. Well worth a visit. The displays in side are fantastic but once you are outside it just gets better. The trench is much longer and bigger than I thought and the tunnel is big to but not very tall so for any tall people it is a long tunnel to bend down in bt worth it.

  • This is incredible and very moving. All trenches are still place in the woods and there concrete tunnels to explore. The museums is very quirky with an extensive archive of slides on old wooden viewing projectors.

  • Museum has a good collection of uniforms and weapons that were used in the trenches as well as some less well known armour and improvised weapons. Also has a good collection of trench art and in the second house a collection of posters and home front bits and bobs. Very little explanation of what you are looking at but that is what google is for these days! Outside are preserved trenches and dug outs with tunnels connecting various trenches. Gives a very good idea of the nasty conditions on the front line.
