My then 16 year old son is a history buff and this trip to Normandy was for him. Going to this museum and seeing the Tapestry was incredible. We all so enjoyed it - to have this piece of history preserved for generations is wonderful.

Take a step back into time and see how history was told centuries ago. The tapestry takes you back and the size is amazing - cannot even imagine how it was originally displayed.

This was really interesting and good to see, I learned a lot from the audio. I am unsure if this is a good place to take the kids, I was with a friends 12 and 14 yrs old they did not want to listen to the audio so did not become engaged and were bored.
