  • This place has come up very nicely after its renovation really! It has more professional look now and ready to attract tourists! The entrance has a nice arch made of glass with variety of beautiful fish that makes us feel like we are getting inside a water tunnel! The sections of fish in fresh water and tropical fish is informative. The small museum with various sea shells and other items is very good! Few sought after species like Shark and Sea Snakes were missing though! Few windows did not have information about the fish there, the hall was crowded and noisy and there was no staff inside to manage it. Overall, it was a nice time in the aquarium, kids really enjoyed​ it!
  • After the renewation the aquarium has many new species of fishes and aquatic animals.They have rare species of fishes. Fresh water fish. Sea Water Fish. It takes about an hour to see the Aquarium. Entry timings 10 A.M. to 8 P.M. Tickets timings 10 A.M. to 5 P.M. Ticket Rates : Adult Rs.60, Child Rs.40 Photography not allowed. The most intriguing part of the aquarium was the innovative type of door fish tank which is made of glass and gives a feeling of being under water. In the new additions of fishes my favourite was jelly fish. The turtles were huge and creatures from sea life added to the rare collection. Overall a memorable experience.
  • A beautiful place for kids, families. The entrance is quite great. They charge around 60 per adult and 20/30 for kids. But it is worth for what you see in this aquarium. The place is small but filled with beautiful creatures, A Giant Turtle, Sea horse and eagle ray fish are the main attractions.
  • International visitors have to pay a higher price for entry. Some nice fish, turtles and others to see. Great entrance but the aquarium decorations inside are really simple and make the place look less attractive. No feeding times. It's not allowed to make pictures if you don't pay for it (ridiculous!!)
  • You may think that jaws movie was shot here . I will be honest with you, no jaws movie was not shot here because the siE of tanks here very small hardly enough to fit a single fin of great white shark. Even, if there was such a huge fish in the aquarium, local fisherman would have cut it and sold it to people ready to buy fresh great white shark as it tastes just yummy. I would totally recommend this place for you and your kids if you bad knowledge of basic fishes. If you are smart enough and with a girlfriend , take a smart decision don't go out just stay home.

Where to stay in Mumbai

In a cramped city like Mumbai, finding a budget hotel can present a serious challenge. Many business travelers and tourists choose to stay in South Mumbai, the oldest and richest neighborhood in the city. Accommodations here put you close to most top museums, restaurants, bars, art galleries, and shops. Proximity to major attractions comes at a premium price, though--not surprising for one of the most expensive cities in Asia. If you plan to visit on a tight budget, look for options near railway stations, but prepare for low-grade rooms and few or no amenities.
