An educational day out - well worth a visit.
Sep 2021
Having visited 30 years ago, my return visit with my two dogs Buddy and Marley was even more enjoyable. The huts were informative and the displays were fascinating to see. There were a lot more outside exhibits including a prefab which brought back memories of visiting my uncle and aunt who lived in one.

You do need a whole day to visit it properly. The staff were all very friendly and went out of their way to help. One slight problem was that as I was a solo visitor and had two dogs, I was unable to get anything to eat of drink in the cafe, as dogs were not allowed in the servery. It did mean that I had to put the dogs in the car at the end of my visit, and then return to get a drink.

Well worth a visit.
Sep 2021
Depending on how 'deep' you want to immerse yourself with the topic of this museum would denote how long you stayed.

A lot of time and effort has been put into the providing a lot of information of the time period.

Not that many large exhibits, that is made up for with the whole story of the time.

Unexpected plus....the toilets are far better that expected.

Educational, emotive experience
Sep 2021 • Solo
As a 16 year old doing history at A-level, it was quite apt I took a visit to a WW2 museum. Eden camp is comprised of about 20 exhibition huts which display a timeline of events during the second world war, such as a German U-Boat, The Blitz (which was closed at the time of visit), and The Great Escape. They do this through recreational dioramas enhanced by sounds and even smells to bring history to life. Overall, it was a very informative, emotive, and though provoking experience. There is something for everyone at Eden Camp!

A place to visit.
Sep 2021 • Couples
Interesting place to visit for Britain’s struggle in WW2. Informative & very educational with plenty of things to see. It covered every aspect of the war at home & abroad.
The restaurant offered a variety of hot food & the sausage rolls were excellent value.

Memories brought back to life

We visited with my mum who is 80yrs old so brought back lots of memories. Lots to see and as it was hot and with our masks on due to COVID we were grateful for all the seating available. Will recommend to family and friends

Excellent Experience

Brilliant day out, highly recommend. Really interesting and informative museum. Good levels of information for all ages, and different levels of detail for those with different existing knowledge of the subject matter. We stayed much longer than expected and would love to go back.
