We could only fit in a visit on a Monday when the museum is closed but glad we did as the place was so quiet. We had a wander round the grounds and through some of the telescopes dotted about. Great view of the Hollywood sign, I'm sure it would be even better if only we could get in!

Visited the observatory and had the bad luck the theater was getting repairs. the exhibits themselves are nice to go watch and the view of LA is just amazing.
Its also a very nice place to start your hikes through Griffith Park

This was the highlight of my recent trip to LA. We arrived around 5pm and enjoyed the exhibits in the museum, the staff were very knowledgable and friendly. Then we watched the sunset over the Hollywood Sign. Then we were able to view Saturn and Jupiter through some telescopes that the staff set up outside the observatory - it was AMAZING!! So much fun, incredible views over LA and all completely free. Do not miss!!
I would recommend arriving just before sunset.

I love going up to the observatory! The 360 views of LA are breathtaking. My family and I like to hike the trails on the weekends and usually revisit the museum a couple of times a month.
