Visit

EDEN CAMP IS CURRENTLY CLOSED DUE TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS

Opening Times

Open 10am – 5pm, 7 days a week. Last admission 4pm.

We recommend at least 3-4 hours for a visit.

During school term time we are a popular venue for school groups which generally vacate the museum at around 2pm.

Over the Christmas period we close for around 2 weeks from 24th December.

Parking

Free onsite parking is available for up to 400 cars and we have a dedicated area for coaches, minibuses, motorhomes and caravans.

Dogs

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 this Easter (2020) 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 area. During wet weather the play area will be closed for safety reasons, please call on the day of your visit for more information.

Picnic Areas

In addition to WinStan’s Bunker Café, we offer both indoor and outdoor eating areas.

Disabled Facilities

We have tried to ensure that our museum is accessible to all. All exhibitions and walkways are on one level, with ramps where needed but no steps or lifts. Visitors are welcome to use their own wheelchairs and mobility scooters, though some visitors have experienced issues when using larger (class 3) mobility scooters within some of our display huts. We have a limited number of manual wheelchairs available for loan, free of charge (pre-booking of these is recommended). Braille sheets are available for visitors with visual impairments. Please note, some of our exhibitions contain flashing/strobe lighting and smoke effects. Please contact us for further information.

Notice

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.
