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

Visit this place if you want to see animal cruelty at its peak....whether be the big turtle inside a small aquarium or the unmaintained fish tanks....the marine aquariums were a waste with all the corals dead....worst aquarium experience in India

If you wanna take your kids to a place where they visualize all the fishes and othe sea creatures, then you must can't miss this place. The entry fee is nominal. Kids can learn a lot about all the water animals also. It is a air conditioned place so it is very convenient.

After the renovation I expected to see some world class aquarium in India but I was really disappointed seeing it. If you have visited any aquarium abroad like in Singapore or Hong Kong, then you must avoid this because you will feel that you wasted your time. Also the maintenance of the aquarium is poor (as expected), it has couple... More
