Egypt Is Planning an Underwater Museum

View new designs for the proposed site

(Jacques Rougerie)

Egypt wants you to see its Atlantis in Alexandria. The country’s Ministry of Antiquities has proposed an underwater museum in Abu Qir Bay, just east of 2,000-year-old city Alexandria. Visitors would be able to view artifacts—like the relics from the ancient Lighthouse of Pharos—resting on the sea floor. See the project’s updated designs below.
