Biscarrosse hydraviation museum

Assembly and test site for Latécoère seaplanes in the 1930s, Biscarrosse has seen its name go down in aviation history forever, alongside those of legendary pilots Saint-Exupéry, Mermoz and Guillaumet. A museum tells its story.

Visit to the Biscarrosse hydra museum

Not far from the campsite at Lac de Biscarrosse, the Musée de l’Hydraviation is dedicated to the history of aeronautics. Situated just 15 minutes from the Arbre d’Or campsite, it features 850 m2 of exhibition space for period objects and documents, plus a hall of over 450 m2 housing seaplanes from different eras, from the 1930s to the 1980s. Three separate booklets have been created to enable children of different ages to follow the tour at their own pace. In addition to regularly renewed temporary exhibitions, the Biscarrosse site hosts annual international seaplane gatherings every two years: an opportunity to attend air shows and conferences, and enjoy a wide range of entertainment.
