In the course of 2013, the renewed and enlarged Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917 will be opened. The museum commemorates the Battle of Passchendaele, which in 1917 claimed half a million casualties. Until the opening of the new museum, the present one can still be visited in its current shape with an overview of the military aspects of the war in the area on the first floor, and a unique experience of an underground dug out of the year 1917 downstairs.

The enlargement results in a new underground museum focusing on the Battle of Passchendaele, a network of open air trenches and a new remembrance gallery. In this way the museum walk is extended up to 400 metres, along which 5.000 exhibits can be seen. The museum (with the adjoining Tourist Office), located in the grounds of the Zonnebeke château, constitutes the ideal starting point for a visit to the battlefields of 1917.

Open daily from 09.00 to 17.00. Closed in December and January.
Entrance fee: €5 / -26 years: €1 Groups (min. 15 persons): €3 pp
