  • Quite a surprise this small regional museum very close to the Bayeux cathedral and the Tapsetry, and worth a visit. Well done, and some very nice pieces. Beautiful od court room.

  • Excellent museum, really interesting. But possibly avoid if you're with children who need stimulation--there isn't really anything for pre-teens. Also, nothing at all for non-French-speaking children. This isn't a criticism, of course, but just a warning if you happen to have non-French-speaking children with you.
  • I had a wonderful time in this museum. The display of the art works and artifacts is very well done and integrated perfectly with the building. The collection is marvellous. I would definitely recommend it.
