Some other travelers told us to go see this famous tapestry (although I'd been leaning towards skipping it). Be sure to listen to the audio tape (it comes with the admission) that will explain the tapestry's story (how William the Conqueror became the king of England, basically). By the way, it's not tall ... probably about 3 ft (maybe) but... More

First visited this when the kids were young in the 80's. Much easier now for just us olds and the layout of the Musée and its attendant exhibitions is excellent. The Tapestry is absolutely incredible and full of humour and artistic workmanship. Can fully understand why the audio tour pushes you on but sometimes it is a bit quick especially... More

This beautiful and historically significant tapestry (ore embroidery) measuring 70 metres is an extremely popular tourist attraction. The tour comes with headphones but you have to move though quite quickly to keep up with the commentary. I bought a paper copy of the tapestry in the gift shop so I can show my grandchildren.

The Bayeux Tapestry is one of the most well-organized visits I've ever had to a site. The audio guide is spot on when it comes to narrating the intricacies of the tapestry and points out some quite funny side pictures on it that one might not notice without it (the audio is included in the price). The visit is quite... More

This is a small and a little tricky to find museum but it is well worth seeing. In my French classes in High School I learned the story of the tapestry so i knew I had to see it. I am so glad I did. it is super long and the museum highlights pieces really well and explains both the... More

I am ashamed to admit I haven't heard about the tapestry of Bayeux before, but I fortunately rectified the situation by visiting Bayeux and the museum. The audioguide is great and very informative, available in several languages and makes understanding of the tapestry and its magnificence entertaining and interesting.
