The Largest Underwater Sculpture Museum in the World

These sculptures are the first from the 400 that are put on the seabed in the Caribbean, Mexico and they form the beginning of the largest underwater sculpture museum in the world to celebrate the region's Mayan history.

The view is quite impressive!

Creator of the world’s first underwater sculpture park, Jason de Caires Taylor has gained international recognition for his unique work. His sculptures highlight ecological processes whilst exploring the intricate relationships between modern art and the environment. By using sculptures to create artificial reefs, the artist’s interventions promote hope and recovery, and underline our need to understand and protect the natural world.

The sculptures are sited in clear shallow waters to afford easy access by divers, snorkellers and those in glass-bottomed boats. Viewers are invited to discover the beauty of our underwater planet and to appreciate the processes of reef evolution.
