  • Municipal museum highlighting the regional history and local productions. Very beautiful modern architecture exploiting old items. Beautiful place in fine arts with an important curd. Pity that the porcelain of Bayeux is not enough value in terms of the interest it presents in domestic production. Note that the signage to find the Museum is bad and that the entrance of the Museum highlighting the shop is quite disappointing and little "Museum". Visit ticket together with the tapestry

  • Located right next to the Cathedral, this museum traces the Norman arts from the origins to the 20th century and does it through a museum very well made and very modern. Take advantage of a few parts of the Palace that houses the Museum and we also discovered the local arts, lace and more unexpected porcelain of Bayeux. Very interesting and very aesthetic Bravo
