What travelers say:

From dusk til dawn, the Griffith Observatory is a staple for tourists and locals alike. You can hike the trails as early as the sun rises, or gaze into the lights of downtown LA at night. There is also a mini museum with free entrance at night. Definitely a must visit for first-timers in LA.

Additional Information


Standing opposite the "HOLLYWOOD" sign, Griffith Observatory is a landmark of Los Angeles and where many famous films and TV shows have been filmed. Come at sunset and evening to watch the stunning LA sunset, city lights and the starry sky. Astronomical exhibitions are display in lively fashion in the Observatory's halls, where the ceiling is hanged with models of the eight planets of the solar system and decorated with exquisite murals. The dome theater here is modeled on the sky canopy. Lying on the seat and watching films about the evolution of celestial bodies, the vast universe seems to be within reach.

Helpful Information

Many people come here each day to watch the sunset over the Pacific Ocean. If you are also hoping to watch the sunset you should plan to arrive earlier in the afternoon. Parking of vehicles is limited. The weather in the evenings can be a bit colder and more windy so don’t forget to pack a warmer layer of clothes.
