The Biscarrosse Museum of Traditions is one of the major centers of interest in the city. Do not miss to visit it during your camping vacations in Biscarrosse!
Visiting the museum
Created in 1988 thanks to donations from local families and neighboring municipalities, this museum traces the history of life in Biscarrosse. These donations, which are an integral part of the museum, are essentially made up of furniture, tools and various documents. They are exhibited by association volunteers who have taken care to highlight them. Through these models and documents, the place relates the evolutions of the city of Biscarrosse. We also find the work of members, made in the two art workshops of the town, particularly painting on porcelain and basketry. It is therefore a "human" museum waiting for you.
To explore the charming city of Biscarrosse in an unusual way, boat trips are possible at the museum. A volunteer boatman of the association will accompany you on guided tours on the Landes shore. A circuit of approximately 2 hours towards Nabout guarantees you a moment rich in discoveries. The landscapes take shape as you advance on the waters. During this time, the boatman will introduce you to the flora and fauna of the moment according to the season of your visit. You will also know more about the formation of local dunes and lakes. A moment out of time.
The educational farm
The educational farm of the museum invites you to take a walk inside a protected course with various animals: rabbits, chickens, goats, sheep, donkeys, guinea fowl ... To attract them, provide you from a basket of seeds and they will answer the call with their singular cries. A furnished swimming pool is dedicated to duck frolicking, which they share with the peacocks. To top it off, games are offered to visitors under the trees at the end of the route. Benches are provided to accommodate the parents who accompany the young participants, and why not take a photo with the pretty cow "head pass"!
