Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 1,700+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Lovely museum, second time visiting so we had more time to look around. Food was a little overpriced but the amenities were good. Great day out!
  • WWII Prisoner of War camp. Great place to bring your family and learn about so many elements of WWII. Each hut is themed in a different part of the war; from D-Day to the blitzkrieg, this place has tons of information. So much so you are likely to spend hours here and still not take it all in! There are some good displays, old vehicles on show and a doodlebug/V1 (think drone with a bomb). Be sure to see one of the music shows on your visit. And sit at the front.
  • Great day out and excellent value. Not the best for toddlers. But the exhibitions are superb. As is the cafe
  • Went for a nostalgic visit as everyone has been here as a kid through school. Really enjoyed it! Cheap and great exhibits. Too old now for the cool play area though
