I took a relative of mine who had never visited before, to look around. He was blown away by the whole visit, particularly as he had served in Korea and the new exhibit of the Korean war reduced him to tears. Very emotional, but educational and worthwhile visit. Please keep up the good work. We will remember them.

This museum is value for money. It makes you really think about what happened in the war and how it effected people. Highly recommended.

I've always driven past Eden Camp in my zeal to reach Whitby and the North Yorkshire Coast. However, on York Resident Weekend I decided to visit and see what it is actually like. I have to say that I was really impressed with all the information available although there is far too much to take in during a single visit.... More

I have visited Eden Camp several times and never fail to have an enjoyable day. There are thousands of exhibits spread over the site and going in and out of the original huts adds so much to the experience. Only one downside and that is if it's a chilly day wrap up warm as you are outdoors most of the... More

Former POW camp with each hut transformed into a learning experience about WW2. How British civilians coped at home, to how the Allies fought abroad. How the Axis powers waged war across continents. This is an experience for all age groups and you will learn so much in a entertaining way.

While its captivating in places the majority needs vast investment. Old exhibits and broken displays. Younger children will find the planes and tanks spectacular, adults will struggle to keep entertained!

Been here a couple of times with my partner and family. We must go when it's not school holidays as there always something closed or being renovated but this doesn't put a negative spin on the day out. There is lots to see and the staff are super friendly especially the old dude on the front gate! You have to... More
