Breathtaking Underwater Museo Atlantico Unveils Its New Sculptures

Europe’s first underwater museum has just opened in the Spanish Canary Islands, off the coast of Lanzarote. The Museo Atlántico was created by British eco-sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor and consists of life-sized sculptures made of pH-neutral materials that are designed to coexist with marine life. Pieces of the exhibition, installed in February 2016, have already enjoyed visits from angel sharks, shoals of barracuda, sardines, octopus, marine sponges, and a butterfly stingray. The site is about 46 feet deep, and visitors can explore it by snorkeling or scuba diving. The museum is suitable for families, but there are some age and health restrictions.
