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.

  • Interesting, good overview, realistic rebuild of a dugout, trenches. Mind you, it is all about war (of course) and fighting, and little about the impact on civilian life. Saying that, highly recommended
  • The museum is very nice. It is dedicated to WW1, that takes place in this territory. Recommend.
  • Museum with a unique climate that brings visitors to the times of events. Well-prepared and described exhibits, many films and tales of People participating in combat. It's worth visiting and even for a moment to break away from reality.
  • Beautiful venue. A great collection of WW1 relics. Poppy garden a must see.
  • Fantastic museum. You must visit this place!
