This is an important announcement for divers: Europe’s first underwater museum is already a reality in Lanzarote!

It is the first time that the artist Jason deCaires Taylor makes sculptures this size like the 100 tonne 30 metre-long wall, the underwater botanical sculpture garden, and over 200 life-size human figures in a whirlwind formation.

This amazing museum features over 300 life-sized sculptures across 12 installations.
