The others are just okay. They have exorbitant charges for taking pics from mobile (Rs. 500) it is absolutely waste of money. The charges are as... More

It is situated in south Bombay opposite Girgaon chaupati. The renovated aquarium seems similar to the older one but with a bit of comfort. The whole aquarium is AC which is comfortable to all of us.

we had been to the aquarium 2 weeks back and the aquarium had been renovated which was nice. there was an interesting collection of marine life. However much more needs to be done. the turtles barely had any space to move. few of the tanks felt overcrowded and few seemed empty. they should have had interactive sessions/displays/volunteers to educate people...

The places houses a collection of various decorative fish, some turtles, a couple of snakes and some more different animals. Children would certainly enjoy it.

Spread in only one floor this aquarium is recently renovated. Situated very near to famous Chowpatty of Mumbai. Avoid to visit this place during weekends as it becomes too crowded. Nice place for education of children. Variety of aquatic animals which we find in sea can be seen at this place. Overall a nice place.

Try to avoid visiting the Aquarium during weekends as its fully packed with families with babies or school students, Best day to visit is during weekdays.
