We did not tour the entire museum but focused on the tapestry. This the story and history of the area during the exploits of William the conqueror. It was well worth the time to see this thousand year old tapestry.

We arrived 5 min before closing, so we had no queue. We couldn't see the museum on the top, but "La Tapisserie". It was a really good moment I have to admit.

Our main reason for visiting Bayeux was to see the tapestry, Mont St Michel and the D-Day beaches. The tapestry is absolutely stunning and so much more than I expected. The audio commentary that accompanies your visit explains each of the panels of the tapestry...More

Don't miss this. Not a lot of advertisement. Tells the history of William the Conqueror. It is the original tapestry that is actually embroidery that tells the entire story.

This is a must-see as a piece of historic heritage as well as a piece of art by itself. Whether you are interested in the Norma conquest or not, the "Tapisserie" is worth a trip to charming Bayeux.
