Meet the worlds biggest subaquatic museum!

Written by Remi Mathieu on September 8th, 2017.      0 comments

 MUSO, Museum Subaquatico del Arte, Cancun, Mexico

Created in 2009, as they say: ‘The Museum aims to demonstrate the interaction between art and environmental science and form part of a complex reef structure for marine life to colonize and inhabit whilst increasing biomass on a grand scale’ Excellent promises that just wait for your eyes 😊

Fixed on the sea bedding, 500 permanent statues are exhibited there within easy diving and snorkeling depths; made with special materials to ease the coral and the marine life to grow on them. Just be there and enjoy beautiful warm water, visibility and 420 square meters of art exhibition to explore.

There are amazing colours and shades when the sunlight hits the sponges on the statues and weird and funny sculptures that make the dive even better.
The great thing about this spot is that you have so many ways to discover the place, you can go with: the glass boat, scuba dive, snorkel and freedive.
