Visitors can look through telescopes, explore exhibits, see live shows, and enjoy spectacular views of Los Angeles and the Hollywood Sign. During the day, see the live image of the Sun on their solar telescope; each evening, free public telescopes on the roof and lawn for you to observe the night sky.
NEW EXHIBIT: Signs of Life – An astronomical detective story that propels visitors on an investigation to discover what it takes to put life in the universe.
