    • Oysters, we all know them! They find their place every year on our holiday tables. But before being served on a bed of ice, three long years passed. On the Port of Larros in Gujan-Mestras, the Maison de l'Huître invites you to discover this exceptional product, the Pearl of the Basin...

      A one-hour visit in three stages: screening of the film "The Life of the Oyster" (we discover the daily life of our oyster farmers), guided tour in the different scenographic spaces (reproduction, farming techniques, species, etc...), without forgetting the free discovery of the outdoor course with traditional boats, the oyster farming equipment of yesteryear, the whitewashed tiles, all harmoniously staged in the heart of the vegetation specific to the Arcachon Basin.

      You will never taste oysters the same way again!

      The little extra: a discovery booklet for children !

    Very disappointed that I couldn't enter at 12.10pm. At this time, the staff has started to tell everyone to leave the museum. The opening hours is until 12.30pm not 1pm. Then, the museum is closed for 2 hours for lunch. Last entrance is one hour before closing time. Don't bother to come unless you have the whole day to spend in the area.
