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
If you want to have most of your experience, come early to check out all the stuff on display and be the first in line for a view of the telescope. Once the sun starts to set the place is getting crowded!
Awesome!!!! Get there before sunset to find parking. Very crowded but worth the visit at night for a breathtaking view of the city. Very iconic place and educational museum...FREE! Wish they would light up the Hollywood sign again though. It's been dark everytime I visit. Would make a great picture of the iconic sign.
