The Observatory is the highlight of Griffith J. Griffith's contribution to Los Angeles. The construction of this art deco observatory was completed in the early 1930s and has since undergone a major renovation which has enameled it as one of Southern California's most popular landmarks. The Observatory's state-of-the-art Samuel Oschin Planetarium blasts off amazing light shows providing a visual feast for the eyes. Notwithstanding the new technology, simply walk outside and the observatory which provides outstanding views of the area during both day and night. Anyone even vaguely interested in astronomy will find the exhibits and planetarium shows fascinating. Griffith Observatory is of interest to film fans because it was the site of the unforgettable climax of Rebel Without a Cause starring James Dean.
Was there with my family to see my daughter lives in ornage county best view on the LA area. Very cheap and inexpensive place to take family. Everything was free aside from the show. Show are $7.00 and $5.00 if your a student with ID. Great place to spend the evening! I'd recommend it. Parking is free also
The location of the observatory must give you the best views of Los Angeles ever
The observatory itself was fantastic and going on the "party" day gave a great mix of amateur and expert information
a real must vist
I recommend you to go to this Observatory. Its not only very educational u also have a very fun time there. You can watch shows learn about the making of the observatory or just look at all the fascinating facts. Well if you want to learn a little more about Griffith Observatory visit the website make a reservation or just drive there. Its a great experience for people of all ages.
I can not believe this place was FREE to visit. It offers excellent views of the HOLLYWOOD sign. Awesome space exhibits. Parking is tight, so just park on the street and walk up the hill some. Must be incredible at night, but we went during the day. Almost did not visit b/c thought it wasn't going to be great, but it turned out to be a highlight!
EXCELLENT PLACE TO ADMIRE AN EXCELLENT PANARAMIC VIEW OF THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES AND IT'S SURROUNDING AREAS. ON CLEAR DAYS THE VIEWS ARE MORE INTENSE. THE OBSERVATORY WAS BUILT IN A LOVELY ART DECO STYLE ARCHETECTURE TYPICAL OF ITS TIME. THOUGH NEVER INSIDE I AM SURE THAT INTERIORS ARE JUST AS LAVISH AS THE EXTERIOR. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SITE TO BE INCLUDED IN ANYONES ITINARY, THIS WOULD BE FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY, ADULTS AND CHILDREN.
Was there with my girlfriend, best view on the LA area. Very cheap and inexpensive place to take a date.
Everything was free aside from the show. They even have an onsite cafe which is on the pricy side but if you bring your on snacks your all set.
Show are $7.00 and $5.00 if your a student with ID.
Great place to spend the evening! I'd recommend it.
