Trip Planner: Europe / Belgium / Flanders / West Flanders Province / Zonnebeke / Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917
Housed inside the Zonnebeke mansion, Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917 pays homage to the half million people who fell in battle on this site in 1917. View the exhibits in the museum showcasing material findings from the Battle of Passchendaele, including uniforms, supplies, and weapons. Take a walk through the recreated trenches and shelter, and discover the personal stories of the men who fought there. There is also an exhibit on the history leading up to the battle and the battle's consequences. When you stand on the quiet battlefield, remember that it is the site of one of the greatest number of losses during World War I. This tragedy is commemorated with a work of art by Helen Pollock made of the clay from the battlefield and displayed in the museum. Purchase your self-guided tour tickets when you arrive at the museum, but book a guided tour by email at least four weeks in advance.

I enjoyed this museum and I began to feel like I had been there and what was involved in living and fighting from the trenches. Great place to visit more »
Excellent and informative, they can trace what happened to your relatives who died in WW1, where exactly they were killed and where their memorial is situated. Well worth a visit, if you are trying to trace your relative contact them first. I received maps, details of troop movements up to the date my uncle died and exactly where he was at the time of his death!!
