You’ll need scuba gear to visit this artist’s underwater gallery

Off the coast of Cancún, Mexico, lies a beautiful museum. To visit it, however, guests need to come equipped with scuba gear.

MUSA (The Museum of Underwater Art) is an underwater sculpture park committed to conservation. It aims to divert tourists and divers away from eastern Mexico’s coral reefs, protecting the marine life that lives there.

The museum’s giant concrete statues are the work of artist Jason deCaires Taylor, who models them after people in the fishing village close to where he works in Cancún.
