The Eden Camp is on old prisoner of war camp and is well laid out each hut depicting one section of the war giving sights and smells of the wartime. Very interesting and a good 4 hours spent walking round well worth a visit

Had a great day spent here. Very informative museum with plenty of exhibits. The fact that it's a old POW camp gives it a more authentic feel. We spent 5 hours walking around and having lunch in the reasonably priced cafe. Love the girls uniform...More

A brilliant slice of history housed in a former prisoner of war camp. Plenty of exhibits to see - some of which give a real flavour of wartime life. There are also some great vehicles on display including a number of tanks (T34, Sherman and...More

Sorry, unaware if dogs are allowed, best bet to give them a ring 01653 697777. Most of our day was spent in the huts which I doubt a dog would like even if they were allowed, unless it is a small dog that can be carried.
