Cancun Unveils the World’s Largest Underwater Museum

Date: 8/2/2010

The National Park West Coast of Isla Mujeres, Punta Cancun and Punta Nizuc, which receives approximately 750,000 tourists annually, will feature more than 400 concrete sculpture figurines comprising the world’s largest underwater museum, right in the waters in front of Cancun and the island of Isla Mujeres. The sculptures will be created by internationally renowned underwater sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor and will then be sunk within this National Park on the barren areas of seabed at various depths. The National Park’s director, Jaime Gonzalez Cano said ‘The underwater museum will draw many visitors, allowing us to give a rest to the natural reefs. It’s like a restoration process.
