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

For families looking for a visit to the past, in remembrance of world war II and all brave soldiers from Canada and Poland who gave their life for freedom, then this place is a must-visit. Easy parking, friendly staff.

the most interesting part is that the items exhibited come from the homes of the locals living nearby! Our father fought in WW2 and visited his relatives close by in Knesselaere during the war. He told us that when the locals asked him what they could give him, he said "please just some dry clothes". No wonder they were able to find the clothing and supplies of the Canadian soldiers from the locals for the museum. This was the dream and mission of one man who on his deathbed asked his son to carry out the work of building this museum.

Nice place, but sadly food prices are expensive for what you get. 13 Euro for 2 small toasties with a little salad and 2.5 Euros for a small cola. Staff not very friendly. Such a shame as could be so much better

This museum is born to celebrate the effort given by the Polish and Canadian soldiers that fought during the Second Wold War together with the Allied Forces. Big polish units were attached to the British Forces since the D-day, and one of their battle sectors was along the Flemish coast. The collection is private and is completely self-financed. The two floors expose many personal weapons, uniforms, equipment, documents. There are 1/1 dioramas representing battle situations with accurate details. There are some battle dioramas 1/32 as well (D-day landings, Battle of the Bulge), those are sometimes a bit fantastic but the general effect is impressive. Pictures are not allowed inside. There is the possibility to book a guided tour of the gardens close to the Museum. The gardens are beautiful but I did not completely appreciate the visit because the guide spoke only Flemish.
