  • Was not sure about a museum dedicated to the oyster industry - but was really pleasantly surprised and learned a lot during out visit. On arrival we were directed to watch a short, very informative and nicely produced film on the three year life cycle of the oysters from the Bay of Arcachon (this is shown in various languages including English and lasted about 20 minutes.). We even recognised the owner of one of the oyster shacks we had eaten in. We were then given a short tour with an English speaking guide who explained the growth of the oysters and answered any questions. You are then free to explore the rest of this small museum including a small outside area.
  • this museum shows you everything you ever wanted to know about oysters and how they are farmed grown as well as historical collection records dating back to the Roman times. The museum has indoor and outdoor exhibits good for you miss you in the world of oyster collection. The museum offers a video in English French German and other languages. if you are coming de toi streams than you should stop here so you can understand where the delicious treats come from. The admission price is very reasonable and they do offer student discounts.
