This ex POW camp is now a museum dedicated to WW2 from how people lived at the outbreak of the war, dedication and information of all the services, evacuees,home guard and ladies land army, culminating in the concentration camps and the holocaust a very moving and humbling experience. On the lighter side the puppet theatre had all the children singing... More

We recently took friends that were visiting from Spain to Eden Camp, we had a fantastic day, the kids loved every minute of it especially the Adventure play ground. We ate in the large café which was very reasonably priced with a large selection. Thoroughly recommend this wonderful day out for visitors of all ages.

Its very good, to appreciate the site you do need to spend a whole day. exhibits are very good. The "naffi" food is ok, tends to get very busy.

Myself and my 9 year old son had a super day here. It was really interesting and was such a learning experience. It took us about 3 hours or so and we didn't read everything otherwise we would have needed much longer. There were quite a lot of children there just running around, I think children need to be at... More

This was our 3rd trip but we will certainly go again, well worth the admission fee. It is hard to take so much information in just one visit. We are honoured and humbled by what a previous generation endured. My Grandfather was an American GI based in Burton upon Trent still alive & well so I have heard first hand... More

Fascinating, informative, balanced and comprehensive history of WW2. Particularly interested in PoW section as both father and father-in-law were POWs. So pleased you are keeping recent memories alive, especially now most veterans are no longer with us. Congratulations on not falling into the modern trap of simplified, interactive, politically correct displays. A visit to the Camp should be encouraged for... More

What an excellent use for an old group of buildings which were part of a POW camp. There is so much to take in that a couple of hours doesn't do it justice. Very well presented and well laid out. All senior school children would benefit from a visit to see what their families went through. We will definitely go... More

Eden Camp is so Interesting and very educational. It took us nearly all day to look around, and we learned alot about life during the war years, which I cannot even begin to imagine, what it must of been like to have lived through the wars. The effects,smells and sounds were realistic, especially hut 5 depicting conditions during the blitz.... More

What a great place to visit. I don't know where to start. I suppose you could call it a museum, it is really a succession of exhibits set out in old military huts. Each hut having its own specialist subject. You start off with the story leading up to WW2 and continue all the way thought to the end following... More
