WHERE IS MUSEO ATLANTICO?

Museo Atlántico is the first underwater contemporary art museum in Europe and the Atlantic Ocean.
Covering 2.500 square-metres the underwater Atlantic Museum has a unique and permanent collection of statues. The statues are placed at a depth of 12 to 15 metres, in a place chosen mainly due to the physical characteristics of its sea bottom.
Lanzarote’s underwater Museo Atlantico is situated in a protected area by Coloradas Bay, Playa Blanca, located off the south coast of Lanzarote, Spain.
