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 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

They take 60/- per head as entry fees & show some crap. I feel for the poor fishes in those old & rusty tanks. What more their spellings... More

Visited during 2nd week of October with family. Its location is wonderful just opposite to the scenic marine drive mumbai. Their you can see handpicked variety of sea creatures like fishes turtles crabs and other. Its a good time pass but too limited. Only 30 minutes are enough wrap up. Not much worth to visit. This can be skipped.

Overcharged place.... secondly the hype they created with renovated aquarium is not at all upto the mark. ... the walls inside tanks had leakage n spoiled with green Sheval..... it was Sunday so over crowded.... the grand tunnel entry is big fool ..... no washrooms. ... overall needs huge improvement. .. won't recommend it n won't go again ever

One of the best places to visit in Mumbai with kids. Appreciate the collection and variety of marine fauna they have on display here. Must visit place for kids. Bang on the Marine Drive with good connectivity.
