This museum is located in Passendale, Belgium, and is centred on providing a realistic experience of one of the most 'senseless' massacres of the First World War. 

The museum states:

"In the Memorial Museum the memory of the battle is kept alive through images and movies, a large collection of historical artefacts and several life-like-diorama's. Eye-cathcher is an underground dugout tunnel with communication- and dressing post, headquarters, workplaces and dormitories. A breathtaking experience of how the British had to live underground like moles... just because there was nothing left above."
