  • Among the two known famous aquarium in Mumbai this is the best one. With numerous number of living aquatic animals being showcased here. 
  • Aquarium is small in size Crowd was less Less number of fishes than our expectation They need more variety to attract more people 
  • We as tourists had to once again directly 200rs instead 60rs as the local per person to pay. In the entrance area, it looked promising until, was then but continues to deteriorate. Aquariums were not clean, huge turtles were kept in tiny tanks, a jellyfish lay around more dead than alive. And then the exhibition only on one level and not like in the Internet was touted, multi-storied. So it was through here in half an hour. So highest time okay when it just rains

  • Whats shown on the website is for some other place. When we spoke to the authorities they said it's not our site. Total waste of money and time. After waiting for one hour in the queue we finished the tour in 5 min that's it nothing much to watch. Most of the fish tank is empty. Not sure what was the renovation all about. My daughter was totally disappointed.
  • I had visited this aquarium 30 years ago when the fish were in dire state and remembered this situation existed for quite a while. After hearing some good reports about its reopening I visited this year with my son and we really enjoyed the visit. It is small, but has a good variety of fish. You could combine the visit with a walk along the marine drive and make good use of your visit to the area.
  • One of the best in India. Good to refresh the knowledge of fish. I loved this place. First visited maybe around 30 years ago, can't remember.
  • It is the worst aquarium in d world . I am my self a fish keeper and when i saw d conditions in which d fish r kept i was astonished , small tanks ,sick fish ,dead fish and most important thing is that aerosol spray are not good for d fish and every tank had it sprayed in an unevenly manner . In d last tank there is a big oliver wridley turtle and it was kept in such a small tank and can u imagine a creature that roams the oceans of d world is kept in such a small tank. Pls dont go der its a waste of money an time
  • A good place for the children to enjoy and explore all the living beings in water. As a young visitor i think, they should add more species of fish and other living beings but its not at all bad. Very well maintained and obviously good for kids and their knowledge.
