Nice stop if there is a star gazer with you. When we visited the upper parking lot was full and we decided to walk up. (A shuttle bus is also available.) At the observatory there is a great vantage point to see the Hollywood sign. We enjoyed the two shows showing different perspectives on the night sky. At 7:00 pm they even set up some powerful telescopes for public use. Definitely worth our hike up.

Griffith is a must see for its beautiful view of LA and the famous Hollywood Sign but also you are a fan of the La La Land Movie. There are several scenes of the movie that were shot inside and outside of the Observatory, so don't miss visiting here. You won't regret it unless the weather is just terribly disagreeable.

The Griffith Observatory is really so nice and worth to visit. The building is modern and equipped good. You can see a lot of breathtaking views from the roof and, of course, the visitors are able to make a famous picture with the Hollywood sign!

I would recommend to visit this place.

It wasn't open when we arrived but the view of LA is excellent. It was a clear day with no smog so we could see for miles.

Beautiful view, recommend visiting in late afternoon or early evening for the best view with minimal fog and smog. We went during a star gazing party event, it was incredibly crowded and required a steep hike to get to the observatory. I would probably avoid the party in the future or plan accordingly.
