Griffith Observatory

Griffith Observatory is a unique hybrid of public observatory, planetarium, and exhibition space.

Visitors can look through telescopes, explore exhibits, see live shows, and enjoy spectacular views of Los Angeles and the Hollywood Sign. Telescopes are free to the public every day and night the building is open and the sky is clear.

Now playing in the planetarium: Signs of Life, an astronomical detective story that propels visitors on an investigation to discover what it took to put life in the universe in the one place where we know it exists.

Memberships available.

Kidsguide Tip: Admission to the building and grounds is free.
