Eden Camp Modern History Theme Museum

Eden Camp, MALTON, YO17 6RT

This national award-winning museum presents the most comprehensive display of British civilian life during World War II, in the unique setting of an original prisoner of war camp built in 1942 to house Italian and German POWs. Life-size tableaux and dioramas incorporate sound, light and even smell effects to create the atmosphere of the 1940s. Other sections of the museum cover military and political events of the war, and British military history from World War I to modern warfare in Iraq and Afghanistan. The museum also houses an extensive collection of military vehicles, artillery and associated equipment. Look out for the popular re-enactment weekends through the year.
