Eden Camp War Museum

Today we enjoyed a brilliant day out at Eden Camp War Museum, Malton, Yorkshire. If you have never been before it makes a really good day out. The children adore the visit as they are so passionate about our history topic of World War Two. The Museum is full of exciting displays and information boards about life during WW2.

The declaration of war, rationing, evacuation, the Home Guard, ARP Wardens, Air Raids, the Blackout and lots more are really interesting topics covered in the museum. There is a puppet show featuring singers from the period. There are incredible vehicles which the children can explore.

The gift shop is very reasonable and the children love the adventure playground.

It takes us 3 1/2 hours to get there and about the same to get back, so I question the children, staff and volunteers about whether it's worth the journey. The answer is always a resounding "yes".

If you study WW2 then I would recommend Eden Camp for a visit.
