The Cité de l’Océan is a unique concept for an original experience in the depths of the ocean. A scientific and recreational museum dedicated to knowledge of the Ocean, the Cité de l’Océan (City of the Ocean), is a direct link of Biarritz’s own history and culture and the Ocean.

Interactive experiments, fun special effects and 3D animations transform your visit into a captivating odyssey in the quest of knowledge of the blue planet.

Descend to the unfathomed depths in a bathyscaphe, join in the saving of a stranded ship, tease Archie the giant squid, and listen to Christopher Columbus recount his adventures. Our enthusiastic professor will also reveal more secrets of the Ocean during the highly theatrical conferences.

NEW: a polar science base has been installed! Discover the fascinating and hostile universe of the polar caps with our new animation, White Ocean!
