This was our second visit in three years and it was still as good second time over. The price had gone up from £4.50 to £6.50 per adult but it is still worth it. If I have any criticism, the mannequins/ dummies in the displays look a bit unrealistic and a bit jaded, but the overall museum is fantastic so... More

Eden Camp should be a great experience, but fails on a number of basics. The greatest failing is its refusal to deal with credit/debit cards. In an age when most shops activly encourage their use and even no longer accept cheques Eden Camps refusal to accept them is a mystery to me as I`m a heritage commercial proffessional. I visited...

Last year when we visited, I felt the whole place looked tired and needed refreshing. Well, it seems that things have been done. All the scenes seem to be working, some having been completely changed and others updated. It remains an excellent, informative place to visit and is really competitively priced. Well worth a visit!

Eden Camp is a fantastic place, gives you a very realistic view of what people went through during the war. You can spend all day there and still hadn't managed to read absolutely everything. It is very well worth visiting

It took you back in time with the sounds and smells . You could spend a whole day there and not get bored . So realistic caters for all ages and great on a wet day as well as dry day .

What a surprise greeted by very friendly staff member to start with automatic good impression and then the camp.... More
