This excellent museum is tucked away in North Yorkshire but was a great place for a wet day. There is so much to see about WW2 history that we only scratched the surface in a 4 hour visit so allow plenty of time.

Me and my partner came here together. He recommended it as he's very much into historical events such as the world wars, I was abit sceptical as I'm not a huge history type of person but I had a really good day out. Very educational and interesting. I literally knew nothing about the war and now I do. Very affordable... More

This is an unexpected place to visit. I enjoyed it very much. It showed a side of WW2 that is hitherto not show. It concentrated on the social aspect and not the military. There are a few vehicles but the majority of the museum is the original buildings. It was not expensive and a good day out for all. It's... More

Visited Sunday 24th July with my husband and 2 boys aged 9 and 2. While my youngest son was a little scared of a couple of the huts we all had a brilliant day. We went a couple of years back and things seem to have changed slightly. There are a few more little bits in the huts and even... More

....places to visit in Yorkshire. Although I'd been here a few times, this time I visited with my wife and her brother, neither had been before. My brother-in-law was fascinated by the whole experience. Each hit revealed something interesting and new. We were all very impressed with the "blitz" hut and also the "U-boat" hut. My brother-in-law definitely had a... More

My husband LOVED this place! As did our two older children (14 & 17). They found it really interested and in fact could have spent much more time here. Not really suitable for 3 year old though we did spend an hour looking at the vehicles, playing on the fort and having a quick snack in the cafe. Highly recommended

My wife and I recently visited this museum which was formerly a world war 11 prisoner of war camp and has now been converted into a museum using the original Nissen huts for this purpose. The amount of information is unbelievable and there are many vehicles etc. There is also an excellent restaurant. The guide recommends 3 to 4 hours... More

This was the highlight of our holiday to Yorkshire, even my partner who usually hates this kind of thing, loved it! It was also reasonably priced too :) The whole place has so much history, but the museum sets it out in such a unique way that you really feel a part of it. There are smells and sights that... More
