the official opening.
Together with M. Geert Bourgeois, Flemish minister of Tourism, M. Gunter Pertry, West-Flanders deputy for
Culture and Education, M. Luc Dehaene, mayor of the City of Ypres and M. Frans Lignel, chairman of the
museum, she presented the fully renovated In Flanders Fields Museum.
The new museum is more than worth to visit, it's very well done and stunning. All the people involved have done an excellent job. We want to congratulate them all with the fantastic job they have done.
Every speaker said wise things, and we are very happy with that.
