Lovely sightseeing spot, and free access (don’t forget ID to get in!). We got the free bus from Hollywood downtown which came regularly up and back from Griffith observatory. The sights are beautiful, and perfect to see the Hollywood sign too. Easy to get the stroller around with a few steps here and there. Lots of options for lunch, however bit expensive. We went for when it opened and felt it wasn’t overly crowded the whole time. Really worth popping to see!
Visit on a clear night so you can see planets through the telescopes. Also, plan your journey through the exhibition so that you can make it to all the special shows you’re interested in that start at different times - you won’t want to miss one! I especially enjoyed the Tesla coil show.
Beautiful setting and a great place to see the Hollywood sign. The planetarium show was nice and there are many paths for walking. Lunch in the cafe was good and you can sit outside if you eat later than the lunch crowd.
Plan to spend some time there, it has so much interesting information about the stars, planets, moon phases. There was just so much interesting information there. We had a five year old with us and we spent about three hours there. Amazing!!
free to enter inside. Check the website for free monthly "Sunset Walk & Talk" by park Rangers. Free public telescope after dark. You can take 3 hours trail hike from the Observatory all the way to the other hill = the Hollywood Sign
Location is absolutely exceptional - close to the Warner studios (10 min by foot), 15 -20 min drive to Hollywood, Walk of Fame, Griffith Observatory and the Chinese theater, lots of different restaurants literally around the corner (don't trust Google maps, walk and see for yourself). Staff is so friendly and willing to help! Hot coffee/hot chocolate in the lobby was a nice touch. Cute heated pool in February was also much appreciated, pool towels are nice size.
