Housed within the buildings and grounds of a former Prisoner of War camp, a visit to this unique museum will take you back to wartime Britain. Experience the sights, sounds and even smells of life on both the Home Front and the Front Line.
I visited Eden Camp with my elderly mum and dad in July. It was wonderful for my mum and dad to reminisce and I learned so much. Not only from the camp but memories that my dad had being a child in WW2. It's easy...More
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

We spent a couple of days in York using the York Pass to visit attractions. This was the one place I was desperate to see. We made it by the skin of our teeth. The last time I had visited had been in either 1990...More

Eden camp was a prisoner of war camp during WW2 .
All the guys have been made into museum's of different parts of WW1 and WW2 and it's really interesting showing press cuttings and photographs and 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.
