  • Passage to Bayeux, I enjoyed this smartly renovated Museum. The chronological course is beautifully presented in a beautiful setting. The collections are rich and varied: paintings, ceramics, porcelain, lace, remains... Into the history and activities of this city with a rich past. Congratulations to those who have redesigned this museum which many cities should emulate.

  • Very diverse Museum. Although earthenware, works of the middle age and the lace are not my cup of tea. The quality of the scenography of the place my permit to spend a pleasant moment.
