  • Enjoy beautiful restored rooms of the episcopal Palace of Bayeux to expose some interesting pieces and works of art from modern, airy, explicitly and chronologically organized (from prehistoric ages to XX century) has been particularly successful! When culture combines the beauty and serenity of the place, the pleasure of the visit is complete! Feel free to push the door of this museum. "Clever trick": a pass to price interest gives access to three museums: the tapestry, d-day and the Baron GERARD!

  • 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.
