This aquarium is undoubtedly one of the biggest aquariums in India. The entry is free for everyone and you can find a wide variety of fishes here. There are multiple galleries available that provides a comprehensive knowledge about the undersea world. Here, you can spend a good amount of time reading through the articles and watching the fish specimens. Definitely recommended to visit while touring Digha. 👍
Entry is free. Varieties of fish & sea animals are present. Place is clean. Toilet & drinking water are also available. Garden outside is good for relaxing & seating arrangement is available. Photography inside is prohibited. A great place to bring kids & spend time with family and friends.
I don't know why the ac doesn't work here... It was too hot Inside.. the collection of fishes btw was one of its kind..awesome.. do visit this place for an insight into the unseen depths
It's a nice place for those who loves marine..not that much collection though at outside you will find a skeleton of whale. inside photography is strictly prohibited, it's a government place so it will open for public from 10 am, Tuesday it will remain closed.
Entry free and has a decent collection of sea life. Good for a quick visit. Parking available. Toilets and drinking water facility available inside. Photography prohibited once inside the aquarium hall. All in all 30 minutes for the full trip.
