First Underwater Museum Might Actually Be Coming to Egypt

An underwater museum 17 years in the making may actually be built in the Bay of Alexandria. Though it still seems like something of a long shot, French architect Jacques Rougerie is now on board and some initial renderings have been released. The museum would display the ancient ruins submerged in the bay via a series of fiberglass tunnels. It is expected to cost $150 million.
