Visited here with my 10 year old son who had been a while ago with school. He wanted to go again he enjoyed it so much . Really well planned & plenty to see & do with some interactive. Would be good if they could open up the vehicles for people to see inside but I suppose they have to... More

What a wonderful collection of militaria. We spent a fantastic 3 hours sampling the fantastic offerings in each of the well preserved huts. There is something for everyone here and the displays were well constructed. WW2 comes alive through the exhibitions but all other conflicts are represented. Having a very tasty lunch in the mess was also a delight where... More

Decided to pop in to Eden military museum. We followed the route around large complex, but found we couldn't afford the time needed to digest the huge amount of information that was displayed. We took in as much as possible. It looked very informative and many personal stories in each building. So please allow 4-5 hours, at least, to see... More

We visited the Eden camp on the way home after a short break to North Yorkshire. A fantastic day out for all ages, the displays are set out in the huts the Italian and German POW's were held in the war. I especially liked the stories of the inmates who were kept there and how they stayed and settled after... More

A very good first rate place to visit, lots to offer and packed full of information. Allow about 3-4 hours to fully go around the place. Excellent displays (Blitz is a personal favourite) and good food and a nice gift shop. Very enjoyable and educational day out.

A great way of learning WW2 history for all ages. This ex POW camp has been restored, each hut showing a different phase of the the war. The canteen is very good, and serves reasoinably priced fayre... The replica Spit & Hurricane greet you on arrival, and are just a taste of things to come....Allow 3-4 hrs..Its worth every penny!
