An excellent way to understand how people coped in WWII. It filled a whole afternoon and even then I didn't read half the information. Probably the most interesting exhibit for me was the hut showing how the POW's lived and worked in the camp during WWII. The hut depicting conditions during an air raid was genuinely frightening and the exhibits... More

Just visited, and it's a good place to visit for the money. There's lots to see, it's a shame that some of the displays are behind mesh, means some of the displays you can't see clearly. You can easily spend several hours, and one plus for me, was that you are allowed to take dogs round. The chapel is very... More

There is absolutely nothing to dislike about Eden Camp. Its fun, informative and even when there are numerous school parties it never seems crowded. It is logically laid out and perfectly designed for wheelchair users, I don't think there's a single step to negotiate. Top marks to everybody concerned. Catering is excellent if a little institutional. Always worth another visit.

I have been to Eden Camp a couple of times over the last twenty years and it never fails to be interesting. This time in particular the wartime theatre which was filled to the brim with school trip children who all joined in the sing along. It was worth going just to hear that. Another thing that also astounds me... More

A fab place to visit if you're in to military and social history. Each ex POW hut has a theme with many displays which bring the history to life. I was expecting an hour trip to kill some time, 3 hours later we left after having a brilliant unexpected visit. Highly recommended

This was our second visit to this marvellous museum. We only had time to do half the huts this time, but we still thoroughly enjoyed what we saw. We think it is well laid out, making the most of the old POW camp. There are lots of places to sit and take a break, a decent looking cafe, although we... More
