I did not know much about the tapestry before coming to the museum. I was absolutely blown away. The audio guide is fantastic and the process was very well organized. It is amazing that the tapestry is so well kept after nearly 1000 years! I...More

What an opportunity to see a work of art that's nearly 1,000 years old. It survived two world wars, the Bayeux cathedral burning down twice, plus all the political and military struggles in between. Fantastic visitor centre and informative museum.

It was interesting. It had a nice story. It was a nice thing to do on a rainy day. I would not have made a special trip.

Very interesting display. Don't do the tour without an audio guide. It's slow moving but well worth it. You can really get a feel for the history and effort which was made to create the tapestry

This is the second time that I have seen the Tapestry. It has now been moved further into the building, where there is plenty of room for queuing, and more space around it. The audio guide is brilliant, because it explains the tapestry step by...More

Who thought I could get so stoked about a tapestry?!? One of the most unexpected highlights of the trip. I was excited to see it but that didn't prepare me enough. It is an embroidered 70 meter panel detailing the Battle of Hastings and other...More
