A Visit to an Underwater Art Museum

The last time we checked in on the MUSA underwater art museum, it was under construction. The concrete sculptures were set eight meters under water to act as a natural reef and to draw divers away from the delicate natural reefs nearby.

Mike Powell and Jürgen Horn, who are living in Yucatán for 91 Days, took the opportunity to explore the Museo Subacuático de Arte off the coast of Isla Mujeres in Mexico, now finished and open to scuba divers. As you can see, organisms, including coral, are beginning to grow on the statues, just as planned. You can see more pictures plus videos of the MUSA dive and another to Manchones Reef at Yucatán for 91 Days.
