Bayeux Tapestry Museum Reviews & Ratings

  • This embroidered tapestry is in amazingly good condition for being 1000 years old! Ive never seen anything quite like it. The (included) audio guide entertainingly describes the events in each panel. Would not have been nearly as interesting without it. Well worth the trip and price od admission. (Sorry no pics allowed)

  • The tapestry was gorgeous and incredible. Audio guide was quite informative as well. We were pleasantly surprised that they had a kids version of the audio guide also that our children were very into.

  • Lovely place. Tapestry is great however felt a bit rushed with the commentary and not enough time to study the work. But beautiful.

  • The tapestry is very cool to see and the free audio guide that walks you through it is well written. One of our group thought it was too fast, I thought it went an ok pace.

  • My father really enjoyed seeing this. It was interesting how long they recorded time with a piece of fabric. I was a little bored, but my father loved it so that made it better for me.
