Musa Museo Subacuatico de Arte, Isla Mujeres

3.3
Admire art 8m (28 ft) below the water's surface at Musa 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.

  • This is an amazing idea and as its been around a few years now it has taken on its own life with fish living all over the place.  more »
  • The current was pretty strong and waves big the day we went so we didn't get to spend as much time as we'd have liked, but it was fascinating to see all the underwater sculptures there.  more »
  • I went with the family and was a bit exhausting to be with children but the place is awesome! Muuuuitos fish, we saw stingray and the water is crystal clear.
