Bayeux Tapestry Museum, Bayeux Reviews - Write a Review
Amazing to experience this historical tapestry. The movie on the top floor cycles between English and French is a must in understanding the background of the tapestry. Be aware that the audio tour that is included in admission plays straight through only once. No backing up. The middle floor has some great models of boats and structures of the time period.
The audio guide for the tapestry felt rushed, and you couldn't pause it! Since they didn't organize the people going in, this led to the formations of large groups of people in front of the tapestry, and sometimes you couldn't get to see the scene that the audio guide was talking about. The contents of the guide itself were pretty good; and the museum upstairs has very interesting information about what happened after the events told in the tapestry. It's an OK visit for the ticket price, but I'm grateful that I didn't visit Bayeux just for this one museum.
It's worth it! Audio guide well-organized, queue gets moving quickly enough, very informative, gift shop well maintained. And I had no idea the tapestry was that long. It's about 70 metres long! Not joking! The tapestry tells the story about William of Normandy coming to England and claiming power and killing the saxons. You get an audio-controller from the personnel, and it tells you the story. Recommended!
Amazing to see the Tapestry and that the colours are still so vibrant. The accompanying audio commentary was, I felt, not allowing much time for pauses or reflection on the many scenes portrayed in the Tapestry. Nevertheless, an amazing experience, recommended.
Great, famous historical tapestry. Visit includes an audio guide which you'll need to interpret the thing as there are no written descriptions. Oddly, even though people came in one at a time and all using audioguides (which autoplay and don't stop), I was slightly out of sync with people near me and often had people standing in front of me. Do the different language guides go at a slightly different pace? It could have just been that those people were slow or poor listeners, of course.
