The Museum aiming to demonstrate the interaction between art and environmental science forms a complex reef structure for marine life to colonize, 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 420 sq meters of barren seabed and weighing over 200 tons. The Cancun Marine Park is one of the most visited stretches of water in the world with over 750,000 visitors each year, placing immense pressure on its resources. The location of the sculptures promotes the recovery of the natural reefs at it relieves pressure on them by drawing visitors away. The entry fees to the underwater museum costs between $69 and $71, depending on the diver's experience and equipment.
