Underwater Museum To Be Built In Lake Titicaca

An underwater museum is in the works on the Bolivian side of Lake Titicaca that will house archaeological items found in the lake over the past 10 years.

The underwater portion of the museum will be accessible from the beach via glass walls, while the on-shore portion will exhibit artifacts found in the lake.

The museum is expected to be completed by 2020, with a estimated cost of US$10 million (~8.8 million Euros). The Bolivian government, UNESCO and Belgium’s Development Cooperation Agency are co-funding it.
