Museum of Underwater Art
The world’s most famous, underwater sculpture museum is located in Cancun. Designed in response to the damage that was being done to the local reef areas, this museum provides a safe haven for coral growth in which marine life can live and breed safely. This Underwater Museum offers the opportunity for beginner and advanced divers to discover over 400 life-sized statues that will form a massive, artificial coral reef in the clear, shallow waters that can be easily reached by divers, snorkelers and those who float over in glass-bottomed boats. The entire project is designed to promote marine life and increase biodiversity in the waters.
