Don't miss this place. Most Americans go to Bayeux to see the D Day sights, which we did also. But you want to make sure you see the most historic piece of the area. The piece is actually embroidery, more than a tapestry. The best...More

Beautiful embroided tapestry telling a visual story of the Battle of Hastings in 1066. It's like an 11th century "cartoon" depicting the details of the Battle, aided by a 21st century audio narration in headphones. Absolutely beautiful and educational.

We all claim to know the story but this animated audio guide to each section of the tapestry illuminated the background to the Battle of Hastings. No spoiler alert needed - just go and visit! The tapestry is presented in a darkened setting to preserve...More

The Tapestry Museum should be on every visitor's must-see list as this 10the century masterpiece is amazing. The narration as you stroll from one numbered diorama to the next is easily followed and one still can marvel at the hand stitching done presumably by Monks....More

Really enjoyed this visit and find it amazing that this tapestry has survived intact and the story it tells. Audio presentation great and a fair recollection of events of that time in history. Seeing the length of the tapestry showed the uniqueness of it.

Well preserved and magnificently displayed tapestry. I was reluctant to go but my husband thought it would be interesting, It was fascinating! Highly recommend the audio guide for reference.

I went to Normandy for DDay beaches and cemetery. The tapestry however was very powerful and worth the trip by itself.
