Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917

The museum is set up in the historical castle of Zonnebeke, on the road to Tyne Cot Cemetery.

In the Memorial Museum the memory of the battle is kept alive through images and movies, a large collection of historical artefacts and several life-like-diorama's. Eye-cathcher is an underground dugout tunnel with communication- and dressing post, headquarters, workplaces and dormitories. A breathtaking experience of how the British had to live underground like moles... just because there was nothing left above.

For current visiting hours, please visit the website of the museum.
