Map showing The Observatory

Attraction Types: Events Center

Opened in 1935, the Griffith Observatory is the centerpiece of Griffith Park, a 3,017 acre park that was donated to the city of Los Angeles by Col. Griffith J. Griffith in 1896.

The observatory itself is loaded with interactive exhibits to keep everyone entertained. The Griffith Observatory is a fantastic place to spend a day in Los Angeles. There's very few places that don't have any cost involved.
