Eden Camp Modern History Museum is a privately owned, educational museum established on an original WW2 prisoner of war camp. It offers a widely varied and unique collection of military paraphernalia, vehicles, and social history both donated and on loan from members of the public. The museum recently launched Eden Camp Heritage Restorations which aims to provide a voluntary led program in restoring historical vehicles and items that have found a home at the museum. They have, in the past month, achieved the amazing feat of starting an M50 Sherman, the only one in the UK to run and move*.
