Enjoyed a 5 hour visit to this excellent war-time museum located in an old Prisoner of War Camp just outside Malton, Yorkshire. Went along with my dad (79) and my husband who thoroughly enjoyed the visit. Each hut has a different theme and the historical information is interesting and takes you back in time to what it was like for... More

Eden Camp is a former prisoner of war camp and is still set out exactly as it would have been, each hut that once housed prisoners is a mini museum, each with its own theme. There are many exhibits to view and even items to touch, so great for those that dont enjoy simply reading information. As it is mainly... More

We spent some 5 hours here including a visit to the "canteen" for some light refreshments. I had thought that it was WW2 Army Camp - but it was in fact a WW2 Prisoner of War Camp and its history & that of WW2 were well covered - many of the articles were vey poignant. Lots of memorabilla, something for... More

Last time I visited Eden Camp was about 20 years ago on a school trip and I enjoyed it as much today as I did then. Today's visit was with my sons, partner and my parents. My eldest son is three so it was a little over his head but we could explain most of the displays to him. He... More

If you're into museums, absolutely fascinating. Quite a bit of walking but my elderly grandmother managed quite well. Very difficult to find as the signposting is non-existant until you're practically there, but definitely worth the journey. The entry fee is brilliant value for the scale of the place, the cafe is cheap and nice.

This 'museum' is a revelation. It covers in the main the Second World War period and is very well presented. There is so much to see that it is almost difficult to take it in. There are many displays which give a real sense of being present in wartime Britain. The 'canteen' is also very good quality and value for... More

We spent an afternoon at Eden Camp and found it all fascinating. We were impressed at how much could be displayed in a relatively small area...entering a hut was like setting foot in the Tardiss! The only reasons for ending our visit were tired legs and the fact that they were closing!

So much to see, with some excellent displays, most of which is inside the old huts. Lots of stories about various campaigns and some very interesting memorabilia. A very good canteen serving food at reasonable prices. Needs at least half a day, but probably a full day would be better.
