Musée de l'Hydraviation

Open until 01 September 2024


From 1930 to 1955, Biscarrosse was the place where Latécoère seaplanes were assembled and went on test flights. The Seaplane Museum, located at the mythical site of the former base, tells you this story and the history of worldwide seaplane activity. A unique collection of models, mechanical parts, documents etc display all the motions of that period. Equally remarkable, the exhibition hall is one of the highlights of the visit with its seaplanes from different eras.

Open from 2 pm to 6 pm from 1st September to 30 June, except Tuesdays and bank holidays (ticket office closes at 5 pm). Open nonstop from 10 am to 7 pm in July and August (ticket office closes at 6 pm)
