Sympatheticaly organised with masses of information about social as well as military history. Even the school parties were engrossed. Good cafe with lovely atmosphere and staff. Dont try to see everything as there is far too much to take in in one go.

Very good museum, it doesn't matter how much you think you know about the Wars, you will find something new, covers most conflicts and not only WW1 & 2. The Room of Remembrance brings everything back to normality and has a solomon peaceful feel to it with a lot of regiments etc represented. I could have sat in there for longer than I did.
Whilst we were visiting there were several schools visiting so although noisy it was good to see them learning in "real life" so to speak. Went once years ago and was not disappointed to visit again and spend longer there.

while on holiday in Scarborough we got a brochure about Eden camp, we thought that this would be a good place to visit. Even though we weren't born during the war we found it very interesting to find out exactly what happened during that time. Each hut was different as each one had a different story to tell, which kept things interesting so you didn't get bored. You can take a packed lunch as there are loads of seats and picnic tables or if you prefer you can try the café which is reasonably priced. It takes around 3 to 4 hours to have a good walk around so its a good day out we would definitely go back again, as its very reasonably priced to get in

This is one of the best places I have visited for quite some time. To do it justice you need to spend as long as you can and could even benefit from a second visit. Refreshments are available and there are adequate toilets. I relearned a lot of facts that I had forgotten and learned some that I did not know before. It was not too busy on the day we visited which was good for us. It is really quite authentic right down to sound effects and the uniforms on display or on the dummies were the genuine article. If ever I am back in the are I will visit again.
