On March 24, 2013, the MAHB reopened its doors after 4 years of renovation.
In the old bishop’s palace, the Museum of Art and History Baron Gérard doubles its size, and shows nearly 5000 works of all kinds, for a full discovery of Bayeux heritage.
From the entrance – by the oldest chapel of the palace (XIII century) – the chronological visit takes the visitor into different times, and different atmospheres…
o Gallo-Roman age;
o Lace space;
o 15th – 20th century paintings and prints;
o Bayeux Porcelain…
The visitor’s itinerary is punctuated by touchscreens, to discover the 20000 digitized works.
After your visit to the MAHB, you can walk next door to the Bayeux cathedral to discover this historic structure. Later you can have dinner at one of the authentic French restaurants in the same street, Rue des Cuisiniers, or The Cooks’ Street.
