The place was really small though there were sufficient variety. Though adults may not enjoy as much as kids. Its worth a visit since its walking distance from Charni station and one can go directly to marine drive from aquarium after the visit.

It is located just near the Marine Drive. The entrance fee is Rs.30 or so only. But for photography, it's Rs.1000. The aquarium is well maintained and there are various types of fish and spices that you can see.

Visited the place with my kids after having visited the place three decades back on a school trip! Kids between 5- 8 years may like the place but for higher ages no interesting stuff. Though there are quite a few variety of fish to see but nothing great as compared to some of the top international aquariums. Location access is... More

Went to aquarium this christmas. Aquarium displays variety of colourful fishes. One can spend 30 mins during Mumbai trip while going to beach near marine lines. Kids will love to watch colorful fishes. Few turtles were also displayed along with fishes. One of the variety still captured in my mind glass fish, which looks like cycling d rowing. Saddest part...

This is one of the best acqarium in India.They add different types of fishes every year.There is also information about fishes.The entry fee is also very cheap.Hardly 2-3 hours required to see whole acqarium.And most importantly after seeing acqarium you can relax on marine drive.

My brother and I visited the Taraporewala Aquarium on Marine Drive on a Saturday. The visit to the aquarium in Mumbai was not worth the time we spent there. There was a line to enter the building. Once we entered, we were ushered again around. Despite numerous signs asking visitors to maintain silence, there was a lot of noise -... More

If you have been to the Sydney, Georgia, Toronto Aquariums or the beach this is not worth your time or money. They just renovated this place and spent alot of money. Apparently is was even worse before the reno
