The biggest underwater museum in the world

The Cancún Underwater Museum (Spanish: Museo Subacuático de Arte, known as MUSA) is based in Cancun, Mexico, devoted to the art of conservation. The MUSA enjoys the status of being the biggest underwater museum in the world. It has a total of 500 sculptures, most by the British sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor and the others by five Mexican sculptors, with three different galleries submerged between three and six meters (9.8 and 19.6 ft ) deep in the ocean at the Cancun National Marine Park.

The underwater museum is to benefit the protection of the coral reefs. Artificial reefs are usually created by sunken ships and other objects that have fallen to the bottom of the ocean floor.

Kids friendly

For all the kids and non-swimming enthusiasts, MUSA offers a beautiful boat ride where you can get a guided tour through its water boats. These fun boats travel through the coral reefs where you can view statues nearly 5 meters underwater without the fear of getting wet!

There is always an option of… snorkeling, as one would only hit the shallow reefs without having to worry about the dangers of deep depths.
