“Heal the Bay Aquarium is a great place to have a birthday party for kids, especially if they are interested in learning more about sea animals. The space is very accommodating and the staff is very friendly and helpful. My daughter had a great time and was so excited she was able to touch sharks! I would recommend this place to everyone!” – Sheryl B, 2022

“We celebrated my two-year-old’s birthday at Heal the Bay Aquarium and it was a wonderful time! [The staff] was flexible and easy to work with during preparation and amazing the day of the party. From touch tanks to shark videos, there was so much to keep the kids engaged and excited. There were a number of volunteers who patiently and knowledgeably answered every kid’s (and adult’s) questions. Our guests raved about the aquarium and the experience. We were so happy we chose to celebrate here and look forward to returning soon!” – Jasmyn B, 2022

“We celebrated our son’s 5th birthday at Heal the Bay Aquarium. All the guests raved about the experience here from the presentations, arts and crafts, and most importantly, getting to know about the different ocean creatures that are native to Los Angeles. We had little guests from ages 1 to 10 years, and every one of them enjoyed the experience.” – Julie H, 2022
