Since Eden Camp opened to the public as a museum in 1987, our visitors have been donating items to our archive which has continued to grow into a collection of national historical importance. In order to make this valuable resource open to the public and thanks to funding from the government’s #hereforculture Cultural Recovery Fund, we have begun the long process of making it available online. We’ve started with documents relating to the museum’s time as a prisoner of war camp but we’re adding new material every week on a wide variety of topics, so keep checking back for more.
