Cancun Underwater Museum - Review

The Cancun Underwater Museum refers to the beautiful and eerie sculptures made by the artist Jason deCaires Taylor. Today, sculptures by other artists have also been added to the mix of underwate art. These underwater statues have all been preserved by the MUSA (Museo Subacuatico de Arte).

There is a series of varied figurines that have found a wonderful viewing place at the bottom of the ocean. The main aim behind this underwater museum is to truly show the unbreakable bond between art and nature through this very eccentric venture of underwater sculptures. There are possibly more than five hundred sculptures submerged underwater in this place.

Seeing these diving sculptures under the ocean amidst the marine life is surely a surreal experience that needs to be had at least once in a life time. Know the best way to see this attraction by adding it to Cancun trip planner.

What makes this attraction quite unique is that you will have to go underwater to see and experience this underwater sculpture park.

  • The sounds of silence, echoing within the waves, make of this museum the most amazing living and breathing exhibit installation. Speechless by the feeling of eternity. DeCaires a timeless visioner!

  • Unique underwater museum, with many human sculptures, and also an old car. You can snorkel in there but I guess it's better to dive and see it from closer.

  • It was impossible to find this place, the 2 taxi drivers I used were not able to take me to this place, instead they took me to Aquaworld. I really wanted to see it in my stay at Cancun. Dissapointed.

  • We reached this place but there was no tourist there. After knocking on the door a person opened the Musa parking gate for us, I could see some sculpture outside so I believe that it was the right place. It was hard to find though and we tried to talk to 1 or 2 persons who were there but no English speaking. We came back after driving for more than an hour for no reason. Complete disappointment.

  • The day we went to musa was a sunny day, so the visibility underwater is really good and we have had a great time there! It was really cool because here you can enjoy the magical relationship between man and nature. It's OK if you never tried scuba diving before, they will give you a lesson in the pool before your real adventure to make sure you get every skills you need, and there will be 2 professional in each group and they check your condition every few minutes, so it's really a safe and interesting place to go! REALLY recommend
