Bayeux Tapestry - Centre Guillaume-le-Conquérant

Highly recommended
The famous Bayeux tapestry (it is in fact a piece of embroidery) is housed in a museum with two sections. In the first, this extraordinary 70m-long jewel of Romanesque art is displayed behind a glass panel, highlighting the rivalry between Harold and William the Conqueror via 58 detailed scenes. On the first floor, models, panels and displays provide a better understanding of William's reign, the origin and history of the tapestry, as well as an insight into how it was made and its conservation.
