A beautiful Caillebotte and an impressive beauty chapel and courtroom.
Musée retraçant l'histoire locale mais pas que. La visite commence à l'âge de bronze et évolue jusque au XXème siècle. Un très très bon moment more »Museum tracing local history but not that. The tour begins in the Bronze Age and evolves until the 20th century. A very, very good time
Fascinating collection of art work and historical artifacts including old aristocratic dinnerware, costumes and jewellery. The museum houses an ancient private courtroom and a secret meeting room that doubled up as a chapel. An insight into the political/religious workings of a era gone by.
Absolutely amazing museum. Beautifully presented in an historic building, really a must do if you are in Bayeux.
