What is there to do at the Griffith Observatory?
The Griffith Observatory is a popular destination for both tourists and locals alike. The iconic observatory, planetarium and astronomy museum has overlooked Los Angeles for over 80 years and allows the public to not only get a great view of Los Angeles and the Hollywood sign but also an amazing view of the night sky.
Griffith Observatory is known as one of the best public observatories in the world. Here you can explore outer space by looking through the Zeiss telescope during a clear day or night. The observatory also features astronomy programs and exhibits including the Wilder Hall of the Eye which focuses on the history of astronomy and the Ahmanson Hall of the Sky Exhibits which explains Earth’s relationship with the sun and the moon.
How do I get there?
The easiest way to get to the Observatory is via the hiking trails starting near the Greek Theatre or Ferndell Nature Museum or simply by catching the DASH Observatory shuttle from the Vermont/Sunset Metro Red Line station to the observatory.
What are the opening hours of the Griffith Observatory?
Griffith Observatory is open from noon to 10 p.m., Tuesday through Friday, with extended hours on weekends. The surrounding Griffith Park is open from sunrise until 10 p.m. and you can explore a variety of other attractions and activities there before the observatory opens.
