The National Aquarium of New Zealand, also known as Napier Aquarium opened in its current location in 1976. In its first year of operation it attracted 230,000 visitors at a time when the population of Napier was about 50,000. In its first 5 years of operation over 750,000 people visited. In 2002 the aquarium underwent a NZD $8 million dollar extension and renovation which included the addition of a 1,500,000L oceanarium with a 50m acrylic tunnel.
