  • A large range of items. Not really for kids. It ranges from Roman items to 17th and 18th century pottery. The best thing to do is get the 3 museum ticket (War Museum, Bayeux Tapestry and this museum) ...  more »
  • Superb museum on the history of Bayeux. Very well staged, we walk the rooms with pleasure.

  • I had a wonderful time in this museum. The display of the art works and artifacts is very well done and integrated perfectly with the building. The collection is marvellous. I would definitely recommend it.
  • Thoughtfully laid out museum. Good quality exhibits and artifacts. It's small enough to be doable in a couple of hours. Clean and has great restroom facilities.
