Watched a show here about Galileo Galilei with the girlfriend for extra credit. It was not that bad but it was a little boring. The view from that place was nice specially at night, you can see some stars in the sky. Not too breathtaking

I've not been inside, but even the views from outside make this a place worth visiting. It was being renovated when I moved here so at some point I'm going to visit it for more than just a look out spot.

Parking can seem like a pain, but it's worth it. This is a good place to spend a leisurely afternoon. The view is really cool, too, when the air is clear.

I've been to many observatories but this one by far is the best. I was lucky enough to come the first Saturday after the full moon and there were many people with their own personal telescopes set up on the lawn....that they allowed you

Pros: It's free, you can drive up to it again, it's open!

After having gone through extensive and costly renovation, and then almost being engulfed by a park fire, the Observatory was again "newly" opened to the public. Very much like the Getty when it opened, you have to make reservations to

Pros: Educational, View

Cons: The bus music was very annoying...please change it to classical or jazz. Also someone needs to proof read those powerpoint slides on the bus.

I was so excited to see the newly-renovated Griffith Observatory, which had been closed since 2002. It re-opened Nov. 3, and I was able to get tickets for Nov. 5 -- bad move. We took the shuttle from the Hollywood Highland station, and
