  • If you are visiting anywhere near enough to go and see the Bayeux Tapestry I would highly recommend a visit. Audio tours in many languages and an adapted version suitable for kids so they can understand it all too. We home educate our children and this was an incredible experience for them that really added something special to their history lessons. The Doomsday Book is a huge added bonus.

  • If you want to have a better understanding of William the Conqueror and early French history, this is a good museum for you. The audio tour definitely makes it more interesting since they tell you the story that is depicted in the tapestry as you walk past and look at it. The museum exhibit upstairs is really small, but kind of fun. They have wax figures clad in period clothing with related artifacts and such. It doesn't take long to see the whole museum, but it is interesting to look at. The movie appears to just retell the same story that was told on the tapestry (we didn't stay to watch the whole thing when we realized it was just telling the same story we'd already heard in the audio tour). So, you can either listen to the audio tour while looking at the tapestry, or just zoom past the tapestry (or just look at the parts that interest you) and then watch the movie. Either way you can hear the story depicted on the tapestry, so it just depends on which way you prefer to hear the story. I personally recommend the audio tour because then you're looking at the actual tapestry instead of a movie about the tapestry. The entire museum will probably only take you an hour at most; it's not very large. (There is a museum pass that will let you see multiple museums in Bayeux, but we didn't have time to stop at any more museums, so we didn't buy one.)

  • Very cool if you're into history. Audio guide included in the price of admission. It was a little faced pages to see the whole thing in detail. The first level has the tapestry, the second level is an exhibit outlining the historical background further. On the top level there is a video but also a mural reproduction of the tapestry which allows you to stop and look in more detail.

  • Amazing piece of history. The audio guide is fast particularly if you are push along with the crowd. Try the pick a spot along the rail and keep going. Upstairs contains more information and a cinema experience which is worth seeing.

  • Went there while on holiday with the family. Glad we went but it'll be a one off. Seen it, done it (lol). Very good free commentary, with a kids version available. Cost worked out better when combined with the other local museums. No photos allowed
