Musa Museo Subacuatico de Arte, Isla Mujeres

(3.3/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan your Musa Museo Subacuatico de Arte visit and explore what else you can see and do in Isla Mujeres using our Isla Mujeres tour planner.
