Eden Camp Modern History Theme Museum

Eden Camp - HurricaneEden Camp - Hurricane

Located on the northern edge of the historic market town of Malton (on the junction of the A64 and A169), visitors to this award-winning museum are taken back to the 1940's to experience the sights, sounds and even the smells of life on the Home Front and Front Line during World War Two. 

Also covering 20th Century British military history in more detail than any other exhibition in the UK, visitors should allow at least three to four hours to explore the museum, which is set in the buildings and grounds of an original World War Two Prisoner of War Camp.

Both educational and exciting for all the family, the museum is also wheelchair and dog friendly.


Tarmaced car and coach parking surrounds the exhibition huts. Designated disabled parking bays and toilet facilities.

All walkways on site are concreted or tarmaced. All exhibitions, exhibits and facilities are located on ground floor level. There are no steps or significant slopes.

All exhibition and support facility huts (café, gift shop etc) are accessible to standard size manual wheelchairs. (A number of manual wheelchairs (large/small wheels) are available and can be borrowed free of charge from Museum Reception Office - pre-booking advisable).

Stimulation of all the senses in exhibition huts is achieved through the use of sound, lighting and smell effects and construction of life sized scenes and scenarios. Audio guides and Braille sheets available (pre-booking advisable).
