Cancún Underwater Museum
One of the biggest and most impressive art exhibition on the planet is the underwater museum in Cancún. What makes it even more amazing is the fact that it is underwater.
It showcases more than 500 full-scale sculptures crafted by famous sculptor Jason de Caires. It was brought about by the need to save the local coral reefs from over-tourism. As a result, the underwater attraction becomes an alternate destination for tourist divers.
