First Underwater Museum in the World: Lanzarote

First Underwater Museum in the World: Lanzarote

An artistic space in which underwater wildlife interacts and observes the art pieces just like the spectators.

Award winning british underwater photographer Jason deCaires Taylor, decided to create the first underwater museum of Europe in Lanzarote. 65 sculptures made of harmless material for the underwater wildlife were installed 15 meters (40 feet) under the sea. At this depth they are visible to boats with glass bottom and to qualified scuba divers. The sculptures are meant to last 300 years underwater and the museum has already a 50 years grand on the triangular space of the exhibition.

The whole idea is for reef, sponges and algae to interact in a free and unpredictable way with the different art pieces.

In 2006 the founder of this project, created the first underwater museum and park in the world in the West Indies. It it is already considered one of the 25 new world’s wonders by the National Geographic. One of the purposes of this unique park in Europe was to incentive and promote the underwater tourism in the Canary Islands, by differentiating the offer. The project costed 700.000€ and took more than 2 years to create.
