Hall of full-scale Seaplanes Musée de l'Hydraviation

Take a self-guided tour of the different parts of the museum

The Musée de l’Hydraviation is unlike any other in Europe. It attracts visitors from around the world and offers young and old the chance to discover the world of seaplanes and amazing transatlantic voyages. Set up on the shores of Lake Biscarrosse and Parentis, it retraces the history of seaplanes and features archival documents, personal keepsakes, spare parts, and genuine, fully renovated seaplanes.



To help you prepare for your self-guided tour, you can use our tour information sheets, which provide detailed illustrations of the importance of these prestigious “air liners”, from the early 20th century to the present day.
