#7 of 18 in Museums in Honduras

Snorkel in the warm waters and discover artifacts that span thousands of years, including a Spanish galleon, pre-Columbian figures, canoes from African settlers, and a submerged Mayan cemetery. The Mesoamerican Reef System that surrounds this island means you'll be sharing the water with thousands of underwater creatures, so keep your eyes peeled for manta rays, eels, and sea turtles. This unconventional museum is best explored when there is good visibility in the water. To visit Bay Islands Underwater Museum on your trip to Roatan, use our Roatan trip builder tool .
