“Dive into history at the For Freedom Museum”


Explore the For Freedom Museum in Ramskapelle (Knokke-Heist) dedicated to World War II. Here, the liberation of West Flanders and the Battle of the Scheldt are highlighted in a penetrating way. The museum’s main theme is the black period between 1940 and 1944, in which no inhabitant of the Zwinstreek and West Zeeuws-Vlaanderen was spared from repression and deprivation.

The For Freedom Museum aims to pass on this phase of our local past to future generations, with the hope that such war violence will not be repeated. Young people need to know that freedom has a price, a price our ancestors paid with hard currency. Freedom is something we must cherish. This important message of peace and tolerance is conveyed daily at the For Freedom Museum.

Upon entering the museum, you immediately notice how much care has been taken to create the atmosphere. You find yourself in a plane one moment, a submarine the next. Then you are suddenly in front of an old barn where you can witness historical events. The setting itself is a sight.

For an even more intense museum experience, you can opt for the audio tour. The audio guide offers not only expert explanations in four languages, but also lifelike background sounds that make the scenes even more vivid.
