Trip Planner: Europe / UK / England / Yorkshire / North Yorkshire / Malton / Eden Camp Modern History Theme Museum
A restored prisoner-of-war camp from World War II, Eden Camp Modern History Theme Museum stands as a reminder of one of England's most trying periods. Thirty-three huts are spread across a small area, with one building holding three human torpedoes and a "Sleeping Beauty" motorized submersible canoe. Other buildings recreate the conditions for a prisoner at the camp and house exhibits related to social and military history from 1914 to the present. Regular bus services running from nearby cities make daily stops near the museum, or you can take the train to Malton station. The site is dog friendly, including designated areas in the cafe.

Most amazing museum. Covers WW1, WW2 and conflicts since right up to recent. Full of information, military memorabilia and life scale experiences. Will keep you informed and entertained for the whole day. If you visit Yorkshire you must visit this gem of a museum. I recommend this museum for young and old. It definitely has the wow factor. Entertaining and educational. Loved it
Lovely day out.. So much to do.. Something different in every hut. Lovely food. Would love to go again. Fun for all ages. Just wish they had some water bowls put out for the dogs visiting as it well such a hot day. Xx
