The world’s first underwater museum is located in the coast of Grenada in the West Indies. It is considered as one of the top 25 wonders of the world by the National Geographic Society. The museum consists of more than 500 life-size statues divided into two submerged galleries: Salon Manchones and Salon Nizuc.
According to Taylor’s website, “The Museum aiming to demonstrate the interaction between art and environmental science forms a complex reef structure for marine life to colonise, inhabit and increase biomass on a grand scale. Each of the sculptures is made from specialized materials used to promote coral life, with the total installations occupying an area of over 420sq metres of barren seabed and weighing over 200 tons.”
