About Griffith Observatory

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.

    The Graphis Observatory at the top of the hill is close to the Hollywood landmark and is one of the best places to take a picture with it. Astronomical knowledge of eight planets and cosmic objects is on display at the observatory, which has a history of nearly 100 years. The top ball theater is built to imitate the sky. Tourists lean back on their seats, 360 176, to enjoy films about the evolution of celestial bodies. Tourists seem to be in the vast universe, naked-eye 3D technology makes everything in the universe close to hand. The open-air terrace on the top can also see the whole city of Los Angeles, with orderly streets, neat urban buildings and skyscrapers in the city. It has a special charm to see the red sun setting on the platform at sunset. Every night, the observatories with giant astronomical telescopes are open to the public free of charge. Visitors can clearly see the stars in the sky, even the surface of the moon, and enjoy the wonder of the astronomical world. Super recommend you to watch!

    Griffith Observatory is one of the most famous observatories in the world. Located in the mountains northwest of downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood Hills is far away. It is a landmark building in Los Angeles and used to be the scene of the movies "Breakfast Girl 2" and "Golden Eye". The Observatory was built in 1933 and opened to the public in 1935. In 2002, it was renovated and renovated. The Observatory was upgraded with steel and cement as a whole. It added a layer below the original one at a cost of $95 million. It lasted four years and reopened to the public in 2006. On January 31, 2018, the Griffith Observatory was launched by NASA to photograph the moon on the night of the "Super Blue Blood Total Eclipse]. From the Observatory, you can see the white Hollywood words on the opposite hill, as well as the high-rise buildings in Los Angeles. There are dirt roads in the surrounding mountains, which can be used for tourists to hike. You can see people on the surrounding beams and in the ditches. They carry backpacks and walk in groups on the mountain roads. The Observatory is also surrounded by a large park.

    The Observatory is located on a hill and can drive to the parking lot on the top of the hill. The Observatory is free, but there are also paid visits, such as movie theaters. The restaurant service here is also very good. You can see a lot of astronomical knowledge, seasonal tides, solar eclipses, the moon, the lack of stars and so on. In addition, the Observatory is located on a hill. It can see Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and the glaciers surrounding Los Angeles. If you have a good view at the foot of the mountain, you can ride to the top of the mountain with horse riding service on the hillside. The scenery is absolutely invincible.

    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.

    Griffith Observatory is located in Griffith Park, driving directly to the top of the mountain, but parking is very troublesome, especially in the evening when the car is full. Remember to see if the foot is in the red line area when parking. Many traffic policemen stick stickers there?

    The scenery is very good. You can look around Los Angeles and see downtown, hollywood. When you go there, you can see some wedding photos taken here. Since my friends who like astronomy, there are Wi-Fi on the mountain, but the net is not very good. There are shuttle buses back and forth. They can sit on Sunset Avenue for only 25 cents. The traffic is very convenient. It's also a kind of enjoyment to sit in the sun on the lawn.

    The Griffith Observatory is said to be the highest place in Los Angeles. It's beautiful, but it's really blocked. My little babies are looking for parking spaces to break their heads. It was worth it later. It's freezing outside at night, but the city lights are really beautiful. ???

    The weather in Los Angeles is blue sky and white clouds every day. The Observatory is the best free sunset viewing spot. It can also overlook the entire Los Angeles and Hollywood logo! You can drive on your own, you can use Uber, it's very close to Hollywood! It's worth going!

    Opposite the Griffith Observatory is Hollywood (forgive me for being too far away to see too much sunshine and blinding me). It overlooks the whole city of Los Angeles from the roof. It's also an introduction to astronomy and science. It's not very esoteric and easy to understand.
