Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917

The Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917 in Zonnebeke, Belgium was renovated and re-opened in 2004. As well as containing many artefacts such as uniforms and equipment, there are also the new and very impressive "experience" sections showing underground dug outs and trenches.

Below is a small sample of some of the exhibits, photographed on a brief visit in August 2014.
