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. 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.

Check their website for special events, such as Star Parties and Sunset Walk-and-Talks.

Admission to the building and grounds is free.
