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 little museum. Porcelain exquisite. So glad we didn’t miss it. We had the three in one museum ticket. Great value.

Excellent place to visit if you enjoy Art history. Well documented information, available in both French and English. Worth a visit if you are in the area.
Beautifully done in the former bishop's palace. One of those great surprises.
