This place is amazing. it was a Prisoner of War camp during world war 2 and has been preserved and adapted as a museum showing all aspects of world wars. The exhibits in the huts are very well displayed and you could spend a full day reading all the panels on the walls. It is absolutely fascinating and so educational.... More

What a great place to visit! We thoroughly enjoyed our day here. The exhibitions, set out in the individual huts, were very well done and atmospheric. There is so much information to take in; every aspect of the War was covered. When we visited, there was also a WW1 exhibition which was very moving. We were able to take our... More

From the minute we entered we were amazed to the order and cleanliness. Went into the Cafeteria and the area was pristine, as were all the toilet facilities on the site. Great place for families, schools, young and even old like me. Full of historical interest from every theatre of war. An absolutely brilliant place to visit in rain, cloud... More

We visited while staying in York for a few days. So much history you need at least 4/5hours and even then you probably wont be able to read everything. This is a second world war museum that used to be a prison of war camp with 33 huts. When visiting each hut you actually get the feeling that You're actually... More

Visited on Easter Sunday as our 8 year old is learning about WW2 at school. We all had a great day, the museum is really well laid out and extremely interesting. It really gives you an insight into what it would have been like to live through the war. Our children also really enjoyed the play area. It was a... More

Eden Camp is a thoroughly unique museum - an ex-POW Camp that makes use of over 25 x Nissen huts to tell the story of WWII (and subsequent conflicts involving British Forces). Each hut features a different aspect of the conflict and manages to evoke the smells, sounds and basic assault on the senses that our parents experienced during the... More
