How do residents return after a devastating war? How do they rebuild their house, and especially their lives? Were there any tourists in 1920? You will learn this and much more in a new exhibition recreated in a post-war barrack. FENIKS 2020

In an additional exhibition space there are dioramas with lifelike scenes and authentic pieces that tell you the story of the medical evacuation from the front line to the hospitals.

Curious in how many steps a wounded or sick soldier is taken until he is lying in a hospital bed? Through diagrams and unique photos from 1917, we explain this story step by step.

In this exhibition you take a dip in history and you can also view exclusive photos of Australian soldiers during their stay at the Hooge. The mix between the photos and the lifelike dioramas make this exhibition highly recommended.
