Useful Tip 1!!
While in Yorkshire, why not visit the Yorkshire Air Museum.

Useful Tip 2!!
The buildings are numbered from 1 and we found the low numbers were busier first thing in the morning. You could start the day off at some of the later huts, only a couple are in chronological order. (but make sure you don't miss any out !).
EdenParagraph 1 Eden Camp is quite probably the best general World War Two museum I have been to. It not only covers the war in general but also Britain's 'home front'.

The museum is well laid out and constructed in the huts of an original Prisoner of War camp built in 1942.
EdenParagraph 2 The museum consists of a considerable number of themed buildings which you walk through in a well sign posted order. If the weather is bad you may have to make a dash from one doorway to another (all very close).

There are often school parties during the week (very children orientated with plenty for them to see) but we found that they didn't really affect us as they tended to pass us by while we were reading.
The brochure suggests you should give yourself 3 hours to view the museum. If you are interested in the war I would allow the entire day to fully appreciate whats there.

If you only visit one World War Two museum it should be this one. If you want to find out more they have a website at:
