"Eden Camp" North Yorkshire Things to Do Tip by SallyM
North Yorkshire Things to Do: 134 reviews and 303 photos
Eden Camp is a former POW camp that has been turned into a 'themed' museum. Scenes are reconstructed using movement, lighting, sound, smells and smoke.
Each hut explores a different aspect of the wartime experience, such as the home front, 'women at war', civil defence, the blitz and life on a submarine, with appropriate sound effects, smells etc.
One hut also has copies of the front page of a newspaper from every day of World War II, which I found fascinating. Although the museum is mainly about World War II, there is also a hut dealing with the First World War and other dealing with later conflicts.
It's good fun and educational for children, and there is a lot there to interest adults as well.
