Griffith Observatory

Highly recommended
On the southern hillside of Mt. Hollywood (1,625ft/495m), Griffith Park's highest peak, this Art Deco observatory (1935) was donated by Col. Griffith at a cost of $255,780. With its central 82ft/25m-copper planetarium dome and two smaller flanking domes, the observatory is one of Los Angeles' most distinctive landmarks. The dome now hosts a state-of-the-art planetarium and is one of the city's premier family destinations. Fantastic views over Los Angeles and the coast.
