Eden Camp Modern History Theme Museum, Malton

4.7
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 museum does not accept credit and debit cards, so come prepared to pay with cash.

  • Took our two grandsons aged nine and eleven and they loved it. We have visited the museum several times and it never disappoints. Something for all ages. We didn't visit the cafe as we took a picnic lunch but did buy souvenirs from the lovely gift shop. A brilliant day out!!
  • Wonderful museum with lots to see and read. Plenty of variation regarding the 1940's and WW2. It's child friendly also and has a lovely cafe/restaurant where I noticed that they actually serve proper chips, well I never. Staff were very polite and helpful. We enjoyed our day there. Michael 🤓
