What is MUSA?
The Underwater Museum of Art (MUSA) is a non-profit organization based in Cancun, Mexico and is dedicated to the art of conservation. In November 2009, around 100 statues were placed in the shallow waters of the National Marine Park in Cancun and that was the beginning of the project. The museum’s total facility occupies more than 150 square meters and weighs more than 120 tons. The museum will one day be a large artificial ecosystem with different types of fish and marine life.
Where is it located?
This museum is located in the waters surrounding Cancun, Punta Nizuc and Isla Mujeres and is one of the most amazing underwater sculptural installations you will ever see.
Who created it?
Around 470 permanent sculptures by sculptors like Jason DeCaires Taylor will take your breath away.Taylor is dedicated to underwater sculpture and is internationally renowned. Contemporary underwater sculptures, which over time become artificial coral reefs, are his specialty.Combining his skills as a photographer, conservationist, and dive instructor he managed to create magnificent underwater living facilities.
Why should you visit it?
This amazing collection of sculptures encourages the growth of corals and marine life. The peculiarity of his work is that it changes over time, as it is affected by the environment.The synergy of creation and nature gives these sculptures a special charm, since these changes would be impossible to do artificially. As time progresses, the sculptures change and evolve into spectacular formations.
