This amazing piece of history is worth a visit and Bayeux itself is pretty, there is lots to see, there is also a lot of lovely shops to discover and the parking is very easy, with a lovely restaurant opposite the museum which is along side the river

Did not know what to expect, however the tapestry was very interesting and presented a good but short history of the time.

We truly enjoyed this museum. You can view the tapesty at your own speed. They provide you with a recorder that explains the story. You can start and stop at your own speed. The tapestry is truly beautiful. To view something so old is truly unique. This was our second visit to this museum.

Liked the fact that is a thousand years old, and yet still fresh and vibrant. The commentary isn't rushed but certainly keeps you moving along

I wasn't expecting to enjoy the tapestry museum but it is a treasure and a delight. It was so well presented; independent voice controls cover just about any language.
