May be it is good for local tourists and children. it is right adjacent to a Restaurant called Punjabi Grill and walking distance from Ramakrishna beach. It is a small Aquarium which is... More

Its a neat little place below a good cafe ,in front of a hip beach. Smaller fishes look healthy but the bigger ones not so much, maybe because of the small enclosures ... The turtles look uncomfortable in their enclosures, cramped and soggy... Children will enjoy it and for a one time show...not so bad

Its not a very big or superbly well maintained aquarium.. but still it is a a decent sized aquarium, with common types of fishes and clean.. Infront of beach so need not travel specifically to visit this. over all a good place for children and people like me who havent grown out of zoos and aquariums

The total time required for a detailed view of the place is maximum 30 to 40 minutes. An... More

Not well maintained... Not much variety of fishes you can see. Considering this is on the coastal area, i was excpecting different varities of marine life, but was disappointed... If you have kids and 30 mins to spare on the beach road, you can visit it for a change, but nothing interesting

This is located near R K beach. Reasonable entry fee . collection are good if you compare the entry price. Collection can further improve if they copy few fish musueam at Singapore and other parts of the world.
