Seaplane Museum Biscarrosse

Exhibitions & Events

Seaplane : international exhibitions and events in Biscarrosse

Seaplanes are often linked to new stories to tell, new testimonies to give. The Biscarrosse’s Seaplane Museum, from the former Latécoère base, invites you to discover the different phases of seaplanes' history, which you will know under the name of "Air Liner", or even via the "Canadair" model. 


Exhibitions and meetings will take you on a journey to the land of these mythic planes.

A new temporary exhibition every 2 years

Renewed every two years, the temporary exhibition highlights the specificities of seaplanes' history: the  journey of theses aircrafts in spare parts from Toulouse to Biscarrosse, seaplanes during the interwar period, exploration of remote regions thanks to seaplanes, etc.
