    • In an atypical place steeped in history – the Anglican church of St Andrew's (1878) – the Biarritz Historical Museum is an associative museum full of charm and treasures where you can discover local history. To do this, you will cross different eras which made Biarritz what it is: Biarritz village of fishermen and farmers, Biarritz city of heart of Eugénie and Napoleon III, Biarritz and the Roaring Twenties or even Biarritz and the world.


      Driven by the sole concern of preserving and transmitting the heritage of their city, stubborn and passionate Biarrots have brought together a very rich and varied collection in this museum. Come and discover this unique collection of 4000 pieces, objects, works of art...


      Entering this Anglican church is like taking a fascinating journey into the history of Biarritz, that of a small whaling port which became a world-famous seaside resort.


      A half-hour video projection, retracing the main stages of the birth and development of the city, is also offered continuously.

      Audio guides in 4 languages: French, English, Spanish, Euskara


      Open Tuesday to Saturday: 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. / 2 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. (July-August: 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. / 2:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.)

      Closed on Sundays, Mondays and public holidays.

    4 sur 5 Reviews posted by Odysseas Papadopoulos on 25/02/2022

    Collection of pictures, posters, clothing and other artifacts detailing the 1000 year history of Biarritz. It is in the converted Anglican Church ans features only part of the material assembled from donations of the major families of Biarritz since 1980 when it was founded. Some English information provided. Could benefit from more displays and additional space. Parking is a challenge.

    Small and not well organized museum. Although the building that used to be an Anglican church is beautiful.

  • "The adventures of Phillyjanie"

    3 / 5 Reviews posted by Bwatsweeds (Hertfordshire) on 22/08/2019

    It was something like EUR10 for two people to visit a museum with literally one room. It had some cool stuff (posters, British trivia, a few signs in British) but nothing like the pots of treasure...

    5 / 5 Reviews posted by Phillyjanie (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) on 13/08/2019

    So I visited this museum out of desire to learn more about Biarritz, which actually has its origins in the whaling industry but thanks to its stunning natural setting and the efforts of Empress...
