Go early when the museum opens to avoid the crowd and you will enjoy the exhibits. Great place to go with family and friends, especially on a sunny or rainy day. I found the ticket price reasonable but the there is an extra price for taking photos which I don't think is worth it. Can't be compared with aquariums abroad... More

I have seen many aquarium, and it was an okay kind of experience. There was a big queue for entrance(we went on Sunday). The highlight of the aquarium was sea-turtle for me.

I really don't know what have they spent crores on, The place is shady and fishes looks starved, horrible management who whistles and asks people to move on, fishes are very very mediocre, management should visit aquarium in other countries, Dirty toilets and tickets are way over priced, can u imagine to take picture for camera they charge 500?

A much hype is created after inauguration of taraporewala Aquarium but actually nothing much to visit and see. Just single floor with 2-3 halls. No facility and proper shed for queue. Also photography charges are sky high ₹500 which is not at all justifiable.

Very Small Aquarium, disappointed with its size. Display boards are electronic, but the display clarity of text is not good because of its font size and they could do this better. Ended up waiting a lot because they ended up allowing around 200 school children.

Long dusty queue. No camera allowed. Small to medium size fishes you would find in households. One large beautiful turtle. Could have been better.
