Eden Camp is really well presented and maintained to bring history to life of the mainly Italian Prisoners of War kept in Eden during the war. Lots of artifacts etc too. Well worth a half day visit (maybe a day?) and too pricey I recall from when we visited in Sept 09

Been wanting to come here for ages and I'm glad we did. Firstly you can take your dog in !! Finding places that you're able to do this is actually really hard! Very reasonably priced under £25 for 2 adults and. 2 kids. The hits are well signed and the whole ace had sign posts and information boards everywhere. Really... More

An excellent day out and very reasonably priced. The museum takes you through time from the first world war up to the present day. Informative and plenty of descriptions in all the huts. The huts have different themes and the way they are spread out, it makes the journey so easy BUT you do get side-tracked near the canteen. I... More

Be prepared to spend a good few hours here, as there is a lot to see and take in! However, I did feel that it could be condensed somewhat, as I found there was quite a bit of repetition. Plenty of parking, quite a decent cafe, an ok gift shop. Such a lot of school parties on the day we... More

This place is a fantastic full days visit, there's soooo much to see it really is a wonderful tribute to every aspect caused and experienced by both WWI and WWII (moreso WWII.) And very fitting use of place the given it's History. My only disappointment was in the hut detailing other conflicts British Forces have been involved in, I struggled... More

Based at Malton, this excellently presented modern history museum first opened in 1987 on the original site of a WW2 prisoner of war camp. It covers the military history and political events from 1914 onwards through the two world wars up to the present day using unique and well presented themes within the original POW huts to bring history to...

We went here on a rainy day and loved it. It's so interesting, sad and life affirming. The exhibits are not technologically advanced but the stories told are part of our history. They don't take credit cards for entry or in the shop so be prepared :)

We visited Eden Camp while on holiday in Yorkshire 19.09.2014. My husband had been before but a long time ago and he hoped I would like it. He said there was so much more there than when he previously visited. You could spend hours here there is so much to see. Very very good exhibitions with realistic effects. Too see... More

We spent almost 4hrs enjoying the museum. The entrance fee (£6.50 adult) was well worth every penny. There is too much to read, if you read it all you'll need to stay for a week! We found to read what really interested us was the better tactic and we spent more time looking at the exhibits than reading. There were... More
