Museo Subacuatico de Arte, Quintana Roo

4.0
Admire art 8m (28 ft) below the water's surface at Museo Subacuatico de Arte. The underwater museum, known locally as “MUSA”, was built in 2009 and is dedicated to attracting divers who would otherwise flock to the endangered Mesoamerican Reef. Exploring the underwater museum, you can marvel at more than 450 life-size statues, made from marine-grade cement that promotes coral growth. View the eerie statues, modelled on the residents of a nearby fishing village and depicting satirical scenes, or observe the Volkswagen piece that lobsters have made their home.

  • Amazing unique experience! Dont expect much sea life apart from some fish, but the statues are awesome!
  • This is one of my favorite sites. The dive is shallow and incredible easy; but, it is just so cool. Over the years i have gotten to see the natural life begin to take over many of these sculptures and form new works of art.
