My husband is a war enthusiast and was eager to visit Eden Camp. I wasn't too fussed because we had our three year old daughter with us who I feared would be bored to years. How wrong was I?! We loved it. The real smells, sights, sounds of war provided by the experience each theme hut offers is outstanding. I... More

We visited here in October. I had been to eden camp a few times before as a child and it was very nice to go back it brought back some good memories. It was well set out with different huts containing information and displays. There was a little bit much on the reading side for young children but it is... More

We visited Eden Camp for a day trip in October. We have passed the place many many times but this time visited with friends. There are many exhibits covering the many conflicts of history. There are many props outside, tanks, planes, and other military hardware. The site is an ex POW camp & each hut now has displays & exhibits... More

Fantastic attraction that was recommended to us by some lovely people in York. Exhibits in every hut with no two being the same. The blitz hut is especially good! An Incredible amount of detail has been taken into account. Tanks, planes and armoured vehicles are scattered about the camp also. Lots of schoolchildren were at the camp when we visited... More

A really good day out. We spent on 4 and a half hours looking around. Every hut was interesting and we could have spent longer there. The staff were really friendly, and the food in the canteen was good value for money and delicious. I would definitely go again.

We spent over 4 hours enjoying this wonderful museum, so leave plenty of time. Housed in huts from when it was a POW camp the exhibits are varied and extremely informative. There were a couple of parties of schoolchildren when we visited who were very well behaved and enthusiastic. Their exhuberant participation in the music hall made our day. We... More

Visited this attraction for the umpteenth time today, still manages to surprise. Their always seems to be something different to see. The exhibits are very realistic and can be quite frightening and smelly!, but moving. Plenty of parking inside after the entrance. The entrance fee is very reasonable. All areas are generally disabled friendly. Well signposted from surrounding roads. Well... More
