The Cancun Underwater Museum of Art (MUSA) is a unique and highly acclaimed public art exhibit located off the coast of Isla Mujeres, Mexico. Founded in 2010 by artist Jason Taylor, the museum covers a small section of the ocean floor near Cancun’s resort area, with more than 500 different sculptures crafted from special marine-grade cement that can withstand the pressures of being submerged underwater.
Visitors can explore the museum’s collection of life-size statues and observe local marine life as they swim or dive around the museum. Many of the sculptures lend themselves to photos of divers encircled by stone humans or standing at an underwater desk, surrounded by cement office supplies.
MUSA is an environmental project created to aid in coral reef conservation, helping to protect and preserve the fragile ecosystems.
