The Tapestry is simple a must-see. At 1000 years old, it is a rare treasure. The audio guide is perfectly done to tell the story of what you are viewing.

We were so excited to see the 70m Bayeux tapestry. I loved that they had an audio guide specifically for children. My kids were enthralled from start to finish. From the tapestry we moved to the next level that answers questions about the historical background...More
