About the museum

Installed in 1983 in the old Grand Seminary, the museum welcomes around 400,000 visitors each year, most of them Anglo-Saxons. There is a permanent staff of eighteen in this municipal museum: a small, energetic group, completed in summer by many students.

In the centre of the town of Bayeux, the Tapestry museum is surrounded by historical monuments, town houses and pedestrian walkways along the Aure, the river that winds its way slowly through the town.
