I went because I was living in France, love textiles but thought it would be sort of a check that off my list experience. So wrong! For starters the way it is displayed is brilliant and their way of managing crowd control and/or people staying at one scene for a lifetime is outstanding. With both in place, one can look... More

If you are interested in Medieval history, this is a must see. Amazing work that chronicles the Royals of both France and England leading up to 1066. Don't miss the Bayeux Cathedral as well

I have not visited the Bayeux Tapestry Museum since I was a child and remembered it as a great experience. It still is. The museum attracts huge crowds, but with the use of a mandatory fast-paced audioguide crowds are kept moving.

The entire visit and museum were wonderful. Definitely a high point of the trip. The audio guide was not so boring or meticulous that we wanted it to end, In fact, it made the tapestry come to life and

For me one of the most famous artifacts in Normandy and a must see museum. However I think the tapestry itself isn't that great - dont't get me wrong - it's the story and its age that makes it interesting. The visit is well thought through with a comprehensive audio guide which takes you through the tapestry step by step.... More

Well worth the visit for about half a day. Our family enjoyed it tremendously and are very glad we made the effort to come. The length of the tapestry was quite astounding when seen in person with a room especially made to display the full tapestry.
