Cancún Underwater Museum

Visit Mexico

History & Culture - Attractions


Many cities boast art, history, and cultural museums, but Cancun’s version of these is a little out of the ordinary. The Cancun Underwater Museum of Art (Museo Subacuático de Arte) is an ongoing project promoting art as well as lively coral reefs. Snorkelers and divers can view its collection of more than 500 sunken sculptures that lie up to 20 feet (6 meters) deep.

You would find sculptures ranging from simple objects such as time bombs to world-renowned art forms such as the ‘Vicissitude’ in close quarters. The ‘Vicissitude’ showcases people standing in a circle looking at the sky praying for hope. Other Installations such as that of a group of men, with their heads buried in the sand, showcase realistic capitalistic burnout. As you glide through the waters you may find yourself deeply transfixed to the strong themes. These deeply thought out themes through real-life-like sculptures will make it the most surreal journey for you.

This hidden piece of wonder is beautifully tucked in between the islands of Cancun and Isla Mujeres on the coast of Mexico.
