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 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 where the unforgettable climax of Rebel Without a Cause starring James Dean was filmed.
I was very disappointed with the Observatory in LA. It was very difficult to find and the signs were very confussing. And then, when we spent a lot of time finding the right roads, we found out it was closed AFTER we had gotten there. I will probably try to visit it in the future, if I can find it!!
Currently under construction as of Oct 5, 2005.
The Griffith Observatory is a fun and educational experience. You've got to to the Planetarium.
The views from the lookout deck and roof are great. There's also an entrance to the Griffith Park hiking trails nearby. If you're the adventurous type, take the trail to the Hollywood sign!
Clean and healthy enviroment. Very interesting after its remodelation.
Great park to enjoy ammenities such as bike riding along LA River. Then, add the Zoo to it!! New remodelled zoo with so many attractions.... If you come to LA you must not miss this spot....
