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.

Situated between the Chowpatty and Nariman Point Stretch on Marine Drive and overlooking the Arabian Sea - this is an excellent aquarium to take your kid to.

Even after its renovation there is not much of the exhibition. There are few aquatic animals, amphibian animals which we find in deep sea, but it just covers the ground floor. Don't hope too much from it, it is not multi storey aquarium

Location: On the main road, right on Marine Drive. We actually spotted it first while driving across. Decor and ambiance: Well-maintained and properly documented aquariums showing various sea species including turtles, fishes and sea horse. Space is a slight constraint for a large group (We came across a school excursion team). They also have a second gallery showing non-live artifacts.... More
