Buy the three museum ticket and go to all three. The tapestry is well presented with audio assistance provided, which helps interpret what is shown.

Recommended. A piece of linen hand made decorated with wool to tell the story of Guglielmo il conquistatore. From the 1066 the tapestry has been exposed one time every year for the people, to Lethe know the history of the country
