An amazing piece of art and history. Beautifully preserved given some of its uses over the years. Extremely well displayed at last, it's so much bigger than expected and the colours and details are exquisite. Such a fabulous record of events.
This was such a well displayed historical artifact. When you enter the price or fee covers a digital audio player that explains every frame of the tapistry and the story that goes along with it. They offer many many languages for this. Then there is an interesting museum with a movie theater. Great way to spend the morning.
Well thought out museum. The free audio guide talks you through the important parts of the tapestry. Cleverly, this also means that you move fairly quickly through the museum. Amazing work, now nearly 1000 years old. Well worth a visit. The shop is well stocked but you need to sift through the tourist tat and find some gems
Definitely a must! For historical reasons of course but mainly because this wonderful more than 70 meters long tapestry is beautiful. Every frame is a masterpiece of art from around 1066 and the figurines, the objects, the animals are colored and somehow naively depicted that you'll love them. The pace of the visit is a bit fast but this is due to the many visitors they have.
Amazing piece of history. Well preserved and laid out. The audio tour is timed very well as you move around the tapestry. Museum exhibits are laid out and executed well and in a coherent order. Would love to go again someday!
