Immersing visitors into the story of the Great War – to ensure they never forget
The In Flanders Fields Museum in Ypres, Belgium, is a place where you feel, hear and understand the horrors of the First World War. Hundreds of thousands of people from around the world visit the museum every year to learn about the terrible years of battle in the Ypres region and hear how ‘ordinary people’ experienced the war.
When revamping the museum in 2012, the curators resolutely chose a narrative approach and interactive technology to enhance the visitor experience. Barco helped them achieve their goal: one Barco F35 and nine Barco F22 projectors help tell the story of the war that led to unprecedented destruction and loss of lives in the region of Ypres.
