The Underwater Museum was inaugurated in 2010 with its first phase called “The Silent Evolution”. At that time, 200 statues were established on the bottom of the ocean, from which the Dream Collector, Man on Fire, and The Gardener of Hope were especially designed to attract different species of marine life.

Later on, the exclusive collection of underwater sculptures was completed with additional life-size human statues inspired by Cancun locals, as well as a VW Beetle aimed to serve as a home for lobsters.

Innovative, spectacular, and unusual, the Underwater Museum in Cancun has already become the largest exhibition of its kind in the world, and one of the most visited tourist attractions in the region. Sightseers can admire the sculptures by diving, snorkeling, or by taking a glass-bottomed boat tour from Cancun or Isla Mujeres.
