  • I have wanted to see the Bayeux Tapestry (embroidery) for years, and I had an opportunity to do so as somewhat of a fluke of circumstance. We arrived as part of a tour group, and we were shuffled in rather quickly. I was not expecting the embroidery to be as large, or even as moving as it was. This particular stop on my trip through France was amazing, and I recommend both seeing the embroidery here and viewing the nearby cathedral. Everyone spoke English, and the audio tour (which you must take, I believe), was offered in multiple languages, including English. You can get right up close to the embroidery (which is behind glass), and the audio tour is perfectly timed to give you a chance to look at every aspect, and still keep you moving. Even though the viewing was crowded, it still created an intimate atmosphere. There is not much else to see in the museum, but you don't need to see much else. Photography of the embroidery is not allowed, even without flash, but the gift shop has plenty of copies of the entire thing.

  • Loved it. A little piece of history which is a once in a lifetime experience. We went outside of weekend/school holidays so it was not busy so it was absolutely glorious to see the tapestry without too many people. However, the audio guide does not let people push or go in front of you so there is not any sort of rush to get round the tapestry or move out of people's way. The museum is also great; the extra information about Normandy and William the Conqueror was really interesting.

  • Great presentation of this historical artefact. As the overwhelming majority of people of that time were illiterate (including nobility and even kings), this tapestry was an effective way to present this version of events that led to Williams ascent to the throne of England. This also looks like a propaganda piece of the times, which is very cool. The audio guide does a great job explaining everything. It keeps a good pace and is available in many languages.

  • This is a fabulous piece of medieval art displayed in an effective way. The long tapestry is displayed in a u shaped room with dimmed lights. An included audio guide provides an effective explanation of the story told by the tapestry. No photography allowed of the piece itself, but there is a reproduction later. Parking nearby is free.

  • Very old tapestry telling the story on William the Conquerer. The audio tour (in English) has a high pace and can not be paused, which is practical during busy times. I liked the 40 minutes visit
