Step into the engrossing story of the conquest of England by William, Duke of Normandy in 1066, told in a 70 meters long embroidery.
The Bayeux Tapestry is presented in a darkened space in which only the artefact itself is lit.  After looking at the Tapestry itself, the visit continues with a permanent exhibition, which presents the secrets of its creation, and a overview of the historical context and the Anglo-Norman kingdom in the 11th century. Finally, on the second floor, a 16-minute film, screened alternately in French and English, shows how the story told by the Bayeux Tapestry unfolds, including reconstructions of real scenes from the Battle of Hastings.
