Eden Camp, Malton, Ryedale, North Yorkshire, Y017 6RT, We were on holiday at Flamingoland and needed a change of pace, a relaxing non white knuckle day so decided to have a look at Eden Camp which is at most 3 miles away. Arriving with no concept of the museum or any inclination of what to expect we had an open mind but quietly expected a small low budget tacky museum with a few interesting features and decided it might be a relaxing hour. On arrival the imediate impression was that we were wrong as the place featured a collection of world war 2 vehicles, tanks and two spitfires which our children were very interested in. Entry is £5.50 ... Read the complete review

Eden Camp is a museum dedicated to learning about the Second World War. It is situated just off the A64 at Malton in North Yorkshire. This is a great museum to visit with or without children. It is built in an old prisoner of war camp and the huts that were there have been transformed into a variety of different exhibits. There are lots of huts that allow children to see what it would have been like to have lived in that period of time. The blackout hut and the blitz one are particularly good - the smell in the blitz one is awful and really gives children an understanding of what it was like. There is an old fashioned music hall and cinema which have ... Read the complete review

This review is for the tourist attraction, Eden Camp. This museum focuses on the Second World War and how it impacted people and is built on a former prisoner of war camp which housed German prisoners of war from 1944. When this was a prisoner of war camp, there were 33 different huts on the site. After 1949 the last Germans left the camp, and the buildings were used for a variety of uses, from lodging houses to car workshops. It was only in 1987 that a museum opened dedicated to the history of the Second World War. Since the museum opened in 1987, it has won a large number of awards and has also grown to mean that all of the former huts and messes ... Read the complete review

Eden Camp is a former prisoner of war camp located a few miles inland from Scarborough in North Yorkshire. It might sound like an odd setting for a museum but with around 300,000 visitors every year it has established itself as one of the major tourist attractions in the region. Built in 1942 with the specific purpose of holding Nazi prisoners of war from the Second World War the layout of the museum that we see today hasn't changed that much. There are still barriers across the gate where visitors now pay their admission fee and there are observation towers surrounding the perimeter, as you approach Eden Camp it really does feel more like you are driving into ...

I recently went to visit Eden Camp Museum in Malton, North Yorkshire with my friend who is a primary school teacher. Her class was planning to study Britain during World War Two the following term and she wanted to check the museum out before she took them there on a school trip. I have a background in historical studies so am always interested in trying out a new place - geeky girl that I am! Eden Camp Museum is set on the site of a former Prisoner of War Camp. It had originally been built in 1942 and housed Italian and German prisoners until 1948. In 1986 a local businessman discovered that the camp was still intact and that 33 of the original huts that ... Read the complete review
