At the moment, the creators of the museum for divers are in the process of sinking and adding new exhibits. The Underwater Sculpture Museum in Marseille, like the other objects around the worldThe underwater sculpture museum in Marseille, like other underwater sculpture museums, is made up of specially prepared sculptures.

In addition, we also find here the ruler of the seven seas – Poseidon.

It is also worth mentioning that the underwater sculpture museum in Marseille has a very modern face. Well, the exhibits have been equipped, among other things, with sensors to test the quality of the water, as well as cameras so that the image from under the water will be available live on a dedicated and free app.
