About Eden Camp Modern History Museum

Step back in time and experience the sights, sounds and smells of the Home Front and Front Line throughout the Second World War at Eden Camp Modern History Theme Museum! Located within an original Prisoner of War Camp built in 1942 by its own Italian prisoners, the Camp appeals to everyone, young and old, including groups and schools. Contrary to popular belief the Camp offers aspects of interest throughout the Second World War and beyond, detailing other military points in 20th Century.
