Its 1000 years old but personally underwhelmed by it - the audio was good and the museum well laid out

The museum has a great walking tour with accompanying audio guide to the Tapestry. You can also stop and review the Tapestry throughout but you can't pause the tape.

The history of William the Conquerer and his conquest of England all stitched into 70 meters of linen. A real treasure!

The tapestry is extraordinary. The rest of the museum a great, too. I especially liked the dioramas of the evolutions of castles and cathedrals.

We visited with a large group of students and we were all able to view the tapestry and didn't feel rushed - fantastic

This experience was SO enhanced by the insightful, descriptive audioguide! Pointing out small details, context, etc., making the tapestry even more engaging. The tapestry itself is wonderful -- its creators had a sense of humor, insight, subtlety. I highly recommend a visit.

I really learned a lot from the audio commentary and other presentations to fully appreciate the Tapestry itself.

The Tapestry tells a rather interesting story of the life of one of the kings of the area. It describes the story in panels sewed into linen. The art work is fantastic and did I mention it is about 186 ft long I believe. It is definitely a site to see.
