School & Educational Visits
School Educational Visit Yorkshire
Eden Camp Modern History Museum in Malton North Yorkshire, is a valuable educational resource visitor attraction for KS2 school groups.
We bring history to life, whilst meeting the requirements of the National Curriculum in all subjects.
Our immersive displays bring history to life, allowing pupils and adults alike to experience the sights, sounds and smells of life on the Home Front and the Front Line which encompasses a whole host of subjects and themes, from art, religious education and citizenship, to geography, design and science.
A cross curricular, self led trip to the museum offers the flexibility to tailor your school educational visit to suit your topic and time scale.
