Following to many questions of visitors, Bayeux museum confirms that the Bayeux Tapestry is still displayed in Bayeux and still for few years. Since the announcement of the eventual loan of the Bayeux Tapestry to the UK, the final decision would happen when the embroidery will be studied to explore its state of conservation. If it’s positive, the loan should happen not before 2022-2023 when the museum will be closed to the public for the construction of a new museum opening in 2025 in Bayeux.
A major work by Gustave Caillebotte (1848-1894), Paysage à Argenteuil (1889), has just entered the national collections. A deposit of the Musée d'Orsay at the MAHB will allow the public to discover this painting in February 2020 in Bayeux.
Annual closure : The three museums of Bayeux will be in winter break from 1st to 31st January 2020 inclusive.
