Went to aquarium this christmas. Aquarium displays variety of colourful fishes. One can spend 30 mins during Mumbai trip while going to beach near marine lines. Kids will love to watch colorful fishes. Few turtles were also displayed along with fishes. One of the variety still captured in my mind glass fish, which looks like cycling d rowing. Saddest part...

This is one of the best acqarium in India.They add different types of fishes every year.There is also information about fishes.The entry fee is also very cheap.Hardly 2-3 hours required to see whole acqarium.And most importantly after seeing acqarium you can relax on marine drive.

My brother and I visited the Taraporewala Aquarium on Marine Drive on a Saturday. The visit to the aquarium in Mumbai was not worth the time we spent there. There was a line to enter the building. Once we entered, we were ushered again around. Despite numerous signs asking visitors to maintain silence, there was a lot of noise -... More

Went to this place in February 2016. A good experience with my wife. I recommend it specially for childrens. You can know and see various types of fishes and turtle etc. A good beach is there in front of this place.

If you have been to the Sydney, Georgia, Toronto Aquariums or the beach this is not worth your time or money. They just renovated this place and spent alot of money. Apparently is was even worse before the reno

I was so excited to visit this aquarium after the renovation, but seriously speaking it was disappointing. 3 small rooms with dirty tanks, and none of the exhibits were exciting. A day wasted.

The Aquarium consisit of three rooms. One large room with big fish tanks and two small rooms with small fish tanks. You have to form a line which winds through the three rooms. The tanks are dirty, unkept, and the water is murky. Once we entered, saw the fish in the tanks, and the set up we decided it wasn't... More

Overpriced , overhyped place. Yes there are lots of marine creatures..fish , turtle etc..but not worth enjoying. All are in some beautiful aquarium of theirs and looking back at us visitors with a non chalant expression...overall a sad place to go to. Even kids didn't enjoy...which is more surprising..a rather small place where the exit door approaches within minutes of... More
