Overview
More
The Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917 presents the historic story of the First World War in a poignant and vivid way, with a particular emphasis on the Battle of Passchendaele. This battle in 1917 is known as one of the most horrific battles from the First World War, with more than half-a-million casualties for a territorial gain of merely eight kilometres. ‘Passchendaele’ not only became a concept in the history of the First World War, it also became a symbol of the great futility of the violence of war in all its horror. The Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917 combines the interactive design of a modern museum with the exceptional aspect of experiencing the Dugouts & Trenches. Last admission at 16:30.

You can't visit this area without taking in this memorial. It's a park and museum which make beauty out of the beast of war. The parkland is stunning and a perfect picnic spot. The museum itself is all-engrossing. Go and weep and man's inhumanity to...More

This museum is located on a large domain with a big park. We thought this to be the best museum experience, with a good audio guide and trenches experience, which was very impressive and educational.

This experience was, I feel, a must see. Yes it was busy but we could all take our time. It was a revelation.

This is the best museum in the Ypres area. The underground living quarters are very good (although the stairway down is lethal!), there is a first rate film which explains 1917 in great clarity and the exhibits are well laid out. Walking through the trench...More

Starting from just before the war and ending with the background of the CWGC. There is a lot to see inside, so take your time. Could be a bit to long for some people. Only downside: the audio-guide does not really offer more information then...More
