  • A huge thank you to Gilbert Van Landschoot, for his tribute to the sacrifices of Canadian soldiers in the Second World War.

  • Excellent privately owned museum. Focuses on Canadian and Polish forces operating in the immediate area. The collection includes an impressive array of items including weapons, uniforms and vehicles with some unique items. We were lucky enough to be greeted by the owner who set up the museum on his family's land and told us about his family in the war, how he collected the items and Canadian operations in the area. We also ate at the restaurant and had a good lunch. Photos weren't allowed in the museum but I did take a couple of the excellent models and dioramas upstairs.
  • A lovely, family run war museum. A really touching exhibit to those who history could've forgotten, but will now always be remembered. The dioramas and models are amazing and very engaging, clearly a lot of time and effort went into them and it was very impactful. The gardens are also gorgeous and fascinating, and well worth a visit.
