Underwater museum attracts divers

One of the underwater sculptures

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

The waters around Mexico are popular with divers, hoping to explore of the area's coral reefs.

But all the diving traffic is damaging the coral so work is under way on an alternative attraction - the world's largest underwater museum.

Concrete works of art have been bedded down in the sea and it's hoped they will steer attention away from the fragile coral reefs.

But if you think it looks impressive now just wait, as even more sculptures will be added to the display by 2011 when it is completed.
