Museums & War Memorabilia

Name Location Type Of Establishment Description
Eden Camp Malton area
    3 miles
War Museum
If you think all war stuff is boring this makes a pleasant
    change. Eden Camp really was a prisoner of war camp.
    There are loads of medals to look at but this is made really
    interesting by the addition of amazing stories about how
    they were achieved. Some of the prisoners handy-craft is
    on display. What makes the handy-craft amazing is the
    things they were made from - bomb shells and alike. A
    simulated submarine section, a wooden fort and a form of
    treasure hunt make Eden Camp interesting for children.
