  • Don't hesitate to take advantage of the ticket coupled with the Museum of the Bayeux Tapestry to discover this beautiful Museum. Modern architecture blends perfectly with the ruins of the chapel of the episcopal Palace. The large Bay Windows brings a lot of light and it's a real pleasure to stroll through the rooms which brings together collections from prehistory to nowadays. The design is modern and full of surprises in the room of the eighteenth century and its flying chairs!
