First ever semi-submarine museum

At the beginning of summer 2018, the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island announced plans to build the museum that’s partially submerged underwater.

Meet first-ever undersea museum with stunning views and located in the Shaviyani Atoll.

It’s the underwater sculpture park and marine sanctuary named “Coralarium.”

In the details, this marvelous creation is a collaboration between the Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi and British artist and environmental activist Jason deCaires Taylor.

“The Coralarium is a place of preservation, conservation, and education. Together with the resort, we hope to raise awareness for the protection of Maldivian coral reefs,” said Taylor said in a statement.

“I want to see a better future for the ocean, for people to see it as a delicate place, worthy of our protection.”

The visitors can dive into the city of 30 sculptures (most of them were made after the real people) that located inside a lagoon 50 meters from the resort’s beach.

In particular, you can see tree sculptures and a stainless steel stairwell inspired by native species of mushrooms and banyan trees, which are just awesome and create an unforgettable atmosphere.

Once you step inside the lagoon, you will feel as in the underwater realm with its own kings and queens.

“Over the years I have realized that the really humbling thing about what we do is that once we submerge the sculptures they’re not ours anymore,” said Taylor.

“As soon as we sink them, they belong to the sea and nature takes over.”
