Borda Museum

The museum houses collections of prehistoric objects from archaeological excavations, and also coins. One room is devoted to regional folklore and local bullfighting traditions. Lastly, two sons of Dax are honoured here: R. Milliès-Lacroix, once minister for the colonies, (collections of African ethnology), and Jean-Charles de Borda, a maritime engineer.
