Certainly, nothing comparable with the difficult task of building a transatlantic airline dedicated to postal service in the early 1920s. But the team at the Hydraviation Museum was able, without a doubt, to draw its inspiration and determination from it. Immense joy and pride for her when the Museum was officially awarded the “Qualité Tourisme” label in the fall of 2020.


In 2017, the Hydraviation Museum decided to embark on this adventure. This national mark, the only state mark, is awarded to tourism professionals for the quality of their hospitality and services. The services are regularly subject to unannounced and independent control and the audited institution must obtain a minimum score of 85% of satisfaction.
