Amazed by the range of exhibits and attention to detail. Absolutely fascinating. We spent about 4 hours there. The kids really enjoyed it too especially after they had celebrated VE Day at school as it made history come to life. Needless to stay, the play area went down extremely well also!

This was a great family day out, initially I didn't think I would enjoy it, but my 13 year old wanted to, so gave in. Loads to see and do, and very well presented. Give yourself plenty of time to see it all, good shop too. Car parking and close to York. Would recommend.

Had a good time on a cloudy day on May Bank holiday. Great get an impression on how pows were held in the UK. The huts themselves hold numerous exhibits on a variety of WW2 and other wars in recent times. Lots of interesting reading and examples. It's a little moth eaten in places but that doesn't diminish the fascinating... More

We had a lovely afternoon looking at all the wonderful memorabilia, fantastic collection and you feel honoured to actually see it in real life. We didn't take our small children as I don't think its for them although some people's children may be better behaved than mine :). A definate must if you're in the area.

Educational and enjoyable day out we spent hours wandering around soaking up the not too distant past . Everything is clearly displayed with moving accounts and histories of the people who lived through it. Easy access and relaxed atmosphere made it a pleasure to visit .The food in the canteen was ok but i suppose what can you expect in... More

I'm not a museum person or a fan of anything old. Went here whilst in Yorkshire . Was very impressed . It was a very humbling experience and certainly made me realise how fortunate not to live in a war era . There were a lot of unruly school kids the day and the heavens opened so didnt stay as...

Eden Camp just outside York is very interesting. My husband and I were so impressed that we took other family members there. A whole day isn't long enough to see and hear all that's there. It's well worth the entrance fee. And the food in the café - well, what can I say. A lovely reminder of what we were... More
