Housed in the buildings and grounds of an original WWII Prisoner of War Camp, just outside the Herriot Country town of Malton. Visitors will get to see the unique collection will experience the sights, sounds and smells of what life used to be like on the home front and front-line during World War Two.
Eden Camp covers the history of the British military forces during the 20th Century more than any other museum in Herriot Country, ranged from the trenches of World War One (1939-1945) and all the post WWII conflicts.
The site is also home to a large collection of tanks, military vehicles, artillery pieces, aircraft ordnance, as well as Air Raid and Fire Watchers shelters which can be explored on the visit.
Visitors get to discover what’s growing in the Dig for Victory vegetable garden and take a look through the windows of the Prefab. Eden Camp also contains a junior assault course/play area and a war time music hall puppet show which is provided free of charge to keep the younger visitors entertained.
The modern history museum is an exciting and educational day out for all the family, allowing at least four hours for a full visit to the six-acre site. The camp is dog friendly with free car parking and full catering facilities available on site.
Eden Camp hosts several special events during the year, including WWII re-enactment, veteran’s parades and services, and historic car and vehicle rallies.
