We had seen pictures on google of the acquarium having a tunnel with 3D view but what we saw was very disappointing. Even after renovation it was like the same old acquarium and charges were also very high.

I visited Taraporewala aquarium in Mumbai today and found the museum to be in a pathetic shape. The tanks were very dirty, one tank had opaque water, some fish were dead, some tanks were over crowded and the fish were fighting and killing each other, and finally many of the fish are common fish found in local fish shops.

When we planned to visit this place, we referred the reviews over the Internet. But only when we visited that we got to know that the place is covering only the ground floor, not as stated otherwise. The variety of fishes that we got to see were amazing and so many of them ! The turtles were huge and creatures... More

We were walking near it and googled the name of this place. What we saw on the internet was fantastic pictures, but I think that google got confused with somewhere else. The place is really not worth a visit. It is just on the ground floor, the tanks were tiny, it was really noisy because of the people and the... More

It's a very small aquarium.. with limited fish. 30 min time is enough to finish it all. It does not match with our expectations.

I expected much more from this place, but found it average one. Like a normal water place. Photography charges is too high! Mobile photography is 500 INR!!! Camera photograpy charges are much more expensive. Entry fees are also too high! 60 INR for normal citizen.
