Very different to a conventional musuem, this is a very special trip and a must go for anyone who is interested in the history of wars during the last century. Being set in an old POW Camp resulted in a really great experience by travelling through different huts and building up gradually the history of World War 2 (This being... More

What a fantastic place, great value for money. The layout has been planned very well and gives a great insight into wartime Britain from all aspects. Loads of picnic areas or there is a cafe in a canteen style which is nice. Plenty of parking space which is right by the huts so not far to walk.

I've been to Eden Camp twice - I was nine the first time, and that night I couldn't sleep, having been traumatised by the mannequins! But having been again as an adult, I can safely rate the place 'excellent'. It's that bit different from your 'typical' museum: while Eden Camp does house hundreds of artifacts and written information about WWII,... More

Great informative museum, refresher course for the teenage historian, fantastic displays, photos, sights, sounds and smells! The mess hall food cannot be beaten- steak pie chips and gravy even the men couldn't finish it all.

The Eden Camp is well worth a visit assuming, of course, you're interested in WW2. I think they say that you should plan your visit to last between 2 - 4 hours. To be honest, if you read EVERYTHING, you would be there all day! There is so much to read you have to pick and chose those bits you're... More

If you are into your warfare and especially into ww2 history this is the place for you. I visited with my father who had participated in ww2 and it was a joy watching his face as he went round the various huts, you could see that the place was brining back a lot of memories for him and I was...

Had a wonderful day at Flamingo Land today, we purchased q buster tickets as the park was very busy. Well what wonderful staff they were at the Kumali Kiosk, Craig and Chris were both excellent but not Old Con. He kept asking what is this. Thank god the other two kept it together.

A really good day out, the camp is well set out with each bunker dedicated to a different topic. The displays were awesome and there was lots of information to read. Nice canteen selling old fashioned grub.
