Additional Information

Introduction

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.
