The museum does a marvelous job displaying and presenting the Bayeux Tapestry which is nearly 1,000 years old. The tapestry is beautiful, and it is amazing that it has survived so many years in such perfect state. The hand held recorders provide a good narrative for the events of the battle of 1066. I highly recommend going to this museum,... More

This tapestry shows the story of William the Conquer for people who were illiterate back in the 11th century. The workmanship is amazing and it was worth seeing.

Where do you go on a wet day in Normandy? Inside - and this was a brilliant choice. Obviously not as busy as peak season but several well behaved school parties from England and France. The audio guide brought the tapestry to life. I would have liked longer at some of the scenes but understand the need to keep people... More

We went to see the tapestry while in Bayeux. We had no real expectations before we went but were enthralled by the exhibition and the story behind the tapestry and learnt a great deal about the history of the time.

The tapestry is approximately 1000 years old. It is roughly 3 feet by (I'm guessing) 100 yards long, and gives the history of Harold's duplicity in becoming King of England and his defeat at the battle of Hastings in 1066.

What a fantastic display ! It is really well presented and very easy to see it all. it is a very long tapestry but doesnot take too long to see. The audio that comes with the entrance price is nice and easy to follow and tells the story better than a Hollywood film. Very worth seeing and great value.

Very interesting story line, and it is hard to believe the age. I was surprised to see the pornography in some of the early years depicted. It isn't mentioned on the audio as you walk through, but be observant if you have concerns with your children seeing it.
