Marine Aquarium And Research Centre, Digha Reviews - Write a Review
Very good the Museum study for school pupil. They are made in tanks are really good. And see nice and realistic. Pupil see the many types fish and made in plant and observation.
Nice place to visit while you are in digha. Photography not allowed inside but you will sea different kinds of fishes there. Though some fish tanks are empty and the light of tanks seems inadequate. No entry fee which is great. Main attraction is the whale sceletal remains placed outside recently,which you can take a picture with.
Update as per 2/Dec/2017: No entree fee. Good collection of live sea creatures. Photography is officially prohibited inside the building. Drinking water & washroom available.
It is government property and lack of maintenance shows. However, on the positive side, entry is completely free and you can watch marine life but it is nowhere near the big aquarium in Kolkata Science City or elsewhere. But there is a surprise. Before exit turn towards the back portion of the building, exit from the rear gate and you see a beach on your left. The short uphill road takes you to the tower beach. It is breathtaking to watch the beach from the top of a tower constructed at this site.
Very nice place. Only place in new digha where you can comfortably patk your car free of cost. Many unknown & unseen sea fish you will see.
