Museums & Galleries

A little over 400 sculptures, most of them human figurines, appear misplaced when one learns about their location. The Museo Subacuático de Arte (MUSA) houses these strangely arresting sculptures eight meters (26.24 feet) under the sea, perhaps the only museum of its kind to exist in the world. Founded in 2009 by artist Jaime Gonzalez Cano underwater museum exhibits are crafted from specialized materials and are lodged into the seabed. There is more than one fascinating way to view these riveting sculptures. While scuba diving and snorkeling allows for a more up-close study of the museum, tours via the Glass Bottom Boat allow families to enjoy this wonderful spectacle too.
