The Beginning of Waikiki Aquarium

This month in history — January 1903 — developers planned an aquarium in Kapiolani Park to attract visitors.

Today, the Waikiki Aquarium educates the public about the ocean and encourages environmental conservation. The second-largest aquarium in the United States, the Waikiki Aquarium is also a research unit of the University of Hawaii.

Read more about the aquarium’s beginning in “Will Build Aquarium for the Sea Beach.”
