The recently renovated Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917 is the perfect starting point for a visit to the battlefields of the First World War. The museum is set up in the historical castle of Zonnebeke and keeps the memory of the Battle of Passchendaele alive using a permanent exhibition with photo- and film material, an elaborate collection of historical artefacts and several life-like diorama's. Eye catchers are an underground dugout tunnel and recreations of both British and German trenches.
Situated on the road to Tyne Cot Cemetery and a stone’s throw from Ypres and Langemark the Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917 is a perfect place to start a daytrip. With a new combination ticket you can now also head to Poperinge before or after your visit to the front. Here, you will learn about the other side of the War: Life behind the lines. Visit the permanent and temporary exhibitions, walk into the authentic soldiers club where you will still be offered a cup of tea and enjoy the wonderful garden. Since this year you can also take a tour with our Story Tablets for an even more exciting experience. We are unable to think of a more suitable end to a day in Flanders Fields.
A single combi-ticket costs € 12. For groups this is € 9 per person and for schoolgroups € 6.5 per person.
