    • Come and discover in the former Anglican church St Andrew's, an unpublished collection of 4000 pieces, objects, works of art...

      Biarritz, village of fishermen and farmers until the 19th century. Biarritz, an international seaside resort since 1854 with the arrival of Napoleon III and Empress Eugénie. Biarritz, the meeting place for artists during the "Belle Époque" and the "Thirties". Biarritz from the 20th century to the present day. To enter this Anglican church is to undertake a fascinating journey into the history of Biarritz, that of a small whaling port which became a world-famous seaside resort.

      The museum is open to visitors from 10 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 6.30 p.m. (July - August from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 2.30 p.m. to 6.30 p.m.) Closed on Mondays, Sundays and public holidays.

      A half-hour video projection, tracing the main stages of the birth and development of the city, is also offered continuously.
      Audio guides in French, English, Spanish and Basque.

    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.

    Avoid the museum if you don't speak french. also the museum is actually just one room so €6 for the ticket seems unjustified.

    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...
