Griffith Observatory

The universe once again reveals its wonders: the Griffith Observatory has reopened.

Visitors can look through telescopes, explore exhibits, see live shows in the Samuel Oschin Planetarium, and enjoy spectacular views of Los Angeles and the Hollywood Sign.

The Observatory is open Friday through Sunday. Hours are noon to 10pm on Fridays, 10am to 10pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

Admission to the Observatory building, the grounds, and the public telescopes is always free.

There are fees for parking and ticket costs for the Samuel Oschin Planetarium. Planetarium show tickets may be purchased only at the Observatory and only for that day’s shows. No online, phone, or advanced purchases are possible.
