Heal the Bay Aquarium in Santa Monica opened its new outdoor patio experience over the weekend.
The new exhibits let visitors explore local marine animal exhibits, including a baby shark nursery, as well as study a gray whale rib bone, learn about ocean pollution and buy sustainable souvenirs.
The aquarium is open Saturdays and Sundays from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. The aquarium will open indoors later in the summer.
