Eden Camp Modern History Theme Museum







A visit to our unique, award-winning museum will transport you back in time to wartime Britain. Experience the sights, sounds and smells of life on the Home Front and Front Line in a series of expertly recreated scenes and tableaux. Holder of both the English and Yorkshire Tourist Boards Attraction of the Year Awards, Eden Camp provides both an entertaining and educational day out for all the family.


The Blitz, the Street at War (with rationing and fashions), the Home Guard, Evacuation, the Battle of Britain and VE & VJ Day are all covered in the first half of the museum, whilst world conflicts and battles are covered in the second. Other periods covered within the museum include World War One and Two, the role played by British military forces around the world since 1945.


Gift Shop and catering facilities are provided in the NAAFI Cafe, Officers Tea-rooms and Garrison Cinema Bar. There is also a Junior Assault course and play area where new recruits and would be Commandos can let off steam (weather permitting). Free on-site car parking and dog friendly. You can also visit our Online Gift Shop to take your memories home!
