Superb audio commentary really brings the tapestry to life. Good value, especially as we got a combined ticket to another museum.

The tapestry was a very interesting and informative story on fabric. It's amazing to see how the history was captured on this continuous embroidery and how some descriptions of the history were shown. The tiniest details were displayed. Use the audio guide as I think you would miss things if you didn't.

We drove from Renne (and then back to Dinan) just to see the Tapistry. It was worth it! It gave us both a better understanding of British/French History before (and after) the Battle of Hastings. It was also a reminder that political types do NOT keep their promises - with resultant unforseen consequences that result in needless bloodshed.

I have wanted to visit the tapestry since I studied it at school ago! We took our 6 year old daughter who loved it. Well presented and a well organised museum. There was a bit of a queue but worth the wait. I would recommend.

The visit only takes half an hour or so but is well worth your time. The audio guide is excellent. The tapestry is in an amazing condition and is so clear. It's incredible that it is nearly 1000 years old and there on display for all to see. A little tip - you can buy a multi-museum pass for all... More

We spent 3 days at Bayeux -- but the jewel of the visit was the wonderful tapestry of Bayeux. It is a journey back into history -- with the events of a thousand years ago captured in this masterpiece. Well worth the journey for all lovers of history.

Brilliant museum. Excellent audio guide for viewing tapestry. A really excellent exhibition with much more background to the Normans and an interesting film to add more detail. All at a level to be informative without being boring or going on too long.

The museum is easy to find in the gorgeous town of Bayeux. We arrived around 11:00 on a sunny August day and had no difficulty parking nearby or getting in without a crowd. The tapestry is displayed in a specially designed room and an audio guide is included in the reasonable entry price (9€ adult, 4€ children and students, free... More

The story of the tapestry was fascinating, especially from the help of the audioguide. I had no idea that the 'tapestry' was so long. The museum was also very well done.

This museum is wonderful for anyone with an interest in either History or Needlework or preserving artifacts as all three come together in this museum. The tapestry is a work of art and part of the world's heritage but it is also magnificently displayed with people having their audio guide but also having to move along with the guide as... More
