Our opening times have recently changed. We are now a seasonal business, our new opening times are: April to October* (inclusive), 10am until 5pm, 7 days a week.
We recommend at least 3-4 hours for a visit.
During school term time we are a popular venue for school groups – if you prefer a quieter visit, we advise arriving after midday.
*Opening dates each year will vary as we will open on the first Monday of April each year. Our last day of the season will be 31st October each year.
Free onsite parking is available for up to 400 cars and we have a dedicated area for coaches, minibuses, motorhomes and caravans.
We are a dog friendly attraction. Well behaved dogs on a lead are permitted across the museum, including the display huts and a designated area in our café.
Junior Assault Course
Eden Camp is family run for family fun!
You can check out our Prisoner Exercise Compound suited to children 5-12 years. Watch from the guard tower, sneak through the escape tunnel or zoom down the slide; there are lots of obstacles to keep you fighting fit! And for the little ones, aged 5 and under, we’ve rebuilt our junior play area complete with a tunnel slide, assault course and plenty of space to enjoy eating outdoors in the sunshine!
Please note: dogs are not allowed in the play areas. During wet weather the play areas will be closed for safety reasons, please call on the day of your visit for confirmation.
In addition to our café facilities, we offer a vast amount of outdoor seating with picnic benches and grassed areas. You can enjoy your snacks in the sunshine or just a well-earned break to take in the atmosphere of the museum!
Our museum is all on one level, so no steps or lifts are involved. Manual wheelchairs are available to hire for your visit (free of charge – please pre-book) and Braille sheets are available at our reception. Please contact us for further information.
During the winter months we strongly advise that all visitors consider a visit to the museum as an outdoor activity and wear appropriate footwear and clothing. Whilst the majority of our exhibits are housed indoors, most of our exhibition huts are not heated, so wrap up warm folks.
