What to expect

Enjoy a private tour of the Griffith Observatory, known as “the hood ornament of Los Angeles.” This landmark building serves as a public observatory, planetarium, and exhibition space. Designed by some of its former employees, this tour will give you an introduction to the city that you’ll never forget.

On this 3-hour walking tour, you will learn about architecture, science, movie history, and the history of Los Angeles. You'll start at the Observatory’s central rotunda, where you’ll admire the overhead murals inspired by Greek myth. Next, you’ll learn about the inventor Nikola Tesla and his 50,000 volt Tesla Coil, which is on exhibit. In the West Hall, you'll discover how our solar system works and look through a telescope to see sunspots.

Then, descend to Gunther Depths of Space where you’ll view the night sky as you’ve never before: this experience provides a 152-ft display of galaxies and nebula as you would see from the Hubble Space Telescope.
