Individual Visit


A visit to the Hooge Crater Museum is recommended for young and old, tourists and historians alike. It is important to book in advance.


Visiting with the (grand)children?
In the Hooge Crater Museum, children can set off on their own with the Hooge Boys' trail. Using a fill-in sheet and museum plan, they arrive at several large signs in the museum. There, they find films of the Hooge Boys, facts about World War I and assignments. In the museum, the signs are placed at children's eye level and written in simple words. It is an interactive and playful trail with fun assignments. So the visit is very child-friendly and definitely worthwhile.
