Dolphin Aquarium in Irla

If you’re looking for something fun to do with kids in Mumbai, why not try the Dolphin Aquarium in Irla?  This little alcove is in the Mumbai suburban district, near Parle, and it is a perfect example of how the city has transformed itself dramatically in recent times.  The aquarium is built on an old dumping ground, but the land has been transformed into a quaint little aquarium and boating lake, surrounded by nature and wildlife, rather than trash.

The Dolphin Aquarium building is in the center of the lake, so when visitors arrive, they realize that they are on their own little island, surrounded by the beauty of water. There is a snack booth where kids can buy soft drinks, popcorn, and more. There’s plenty of seating arrangements to take in the view, and there’s also a toy train and a play area for the kids.  It’s perfect for an afternoon stroll and an educational outing.  Or, you may want to try visiting in the evening, when beautiful lights reflect off the water’s surface and transport you and your kids into a realm of fantasy!
