This museum was created within the Saint-Andrew's Church walls. The first stone was laid by Queen Frederika of Hanover. Inaugurated in 1986 by the Association of Friends of the Biarritz Historical Museum, it will immerse you in the rich history of the city and more particularly the three main periods of the city: the Middle Ages, the 19th century, marked by the imperial family, as well as the First World War, the Roaring Twenties at sumptuous receptions given by English, Russian and Spanish families, the World War II, the thermalism... The association continues its investigations, with a single aim: the research, conservation and exhibition of all properties concerning local, ancient and recent history in order to make the past known and to support or undertake any action to safeguard the movable and immovable property constituting Biarritz's heritage. Many activities, conferences and concerts are offered all year round. The museum is a true concentrate of Biarritz's soul and history. Exciting visit where each object, painting, sculpture, antique book is a unique piece. For the 2019 programming, you will find all the information on the website www.musee-historique-biarritz.fr
The museum renovated and restored in 2019. Indeed, to the delight of Biarritz, Basques and tourists, after two years of work, the museum was restored to its full splendour in June 2019. Thematic islands, a more readable route, unquestionable clarity and luminosity make this place a must.
