Museo Atlantico - the first underwater museum in the world was officially opened to visitors

Do you think that only fish, marine animals and plants can exist under the water? This sculptor proved that it is also a perfect place for an art museum.


Jason deCaires Taylor turned underwater space into a real art museum. He created unique sculptures that were put on the depth of 14 meters and thus formed the first underwater museum. Museo Atlantico - this is the official name that was given to this Wonder of the World.

ramon pinon, It’s situated close to Isla Mujerres opposite to Cancun. This was installed in the hopes that the bleached and dead corals would have something to attach to. Sadly, it seems the corals do not like concrete as it contains lime. It is quite uncanny to snorkel or scuba and coming across life size statues and other figurines.

I can't honestly say I liked this presentation but it was interesting. My question is; why would an artist spend 2 years of his life sculpting figures to put in an art museum that can only be seen by deep sea divers?
