A restored prisoner-of-war camp from World War II, Eden Camp 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. Work out when and for how long to visit Eden Camp and other Malton attractions using our handy Malton vacation builder.

Brilliant displays and lots of information to digest. The exhibits appeal to all age ranges. Very atmospheric in some of the guys with sound and smells to evoke visions to give a small taste of what it may have been like during the wars. Some of the exhibits could be overwhelming for some of the more sensitive people but my 8 year old son was fine with everything.
What a fantastic day out and for only £7. Hugely informative, something for everyone. I could have done with another day to do it justice. Cafe prices were reasonable. Highly recommended
I can never give this museum enough praise! I believe it should be recommended to anyone visiting the UK or looking for something to do in UK. Such a rich wealth of learning and understanding of the War years. The interactive aspect to each exhibit and entire layout is so unique that I find it difficult not to spend an entire day here.
Really interesting and educational day out. Priced to be thought provoking for ten year old kids.
Historically amazing!! The only downside is the smell from the special effects smoke. It smells so bad and also irritates the throat. We had to skip some of the museum due not not being able to take any more smoke.
