“Bayeux Tapestry Museum”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

A most remarkable museum. Well worth the time to visit.
Very near the hotel Lion d'Or.
Be sure to see the movie about the tapestry's history.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 23 November 2013 via mobile

This was my second visit, my first as a school child, now as an adult living in Paris. This time around, audio guides are available free of charge and are a must to fully understand the tapestry. Very informative and well voiced. An enjoyable museum. As a tip, buy the combo ticket to the WWII Museum.

“Great way to see medieval france!”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

It's a nice museum and the viewing experience is enhanced by the audioguide. Get the "combo" ticket because the WWII museum is worth it.

“Great piece of visual history”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

Stopped by on way back to the uk from Mont Saint Michel. Lovely little town. The tapestry tells the story well along with an audio guide. The tour is quick about half an to re tell the story of the huge tapestry. Well worth it for a key piece of British history.
