  • Quite a surprise this small regional museum very close to the Bayeux cathedral and the Tapsetry, and worth a visit. Well done, and some very nice pieces. Beautiful od court room.

  • Excellent place to visit if you enjoy Art history. Well documented information, available in both French and English. Worth a visit if you are in the area.
  • Beautifully done in the former bishop's palace. One of those great surprises.
