A museum dedicated to the Bayeux Tapestry
The Bayeux Tapestry is exhibited in its entirety (230 ft / 70 m) in a dark gallery of the Bayeux Tapestry Museum where only the work is illuminated. The medieval epic it recounts - the conquest of England by William the Conqueror, Duke of Normandy, in the 11th century - is commented in sixteen languages by audio guides. The tour is extended by a permanent exhibition about the secrets of its creation, its historical context, and the history of the Anglo-Norman kingdom of the time. The museum also offers the screening of a sixteen-minute film that unfolds the thread of history told by the tapestry while using reconstructed images of battle scenes.
