Griffith Observatory FREE TOUR

Did you know that the Griffith Observatory offers a Sunset Walk & Talk one evening a month...and it's FREE?  That's right FREE!!!

Each month the Observatory offers a sunset hike led by a Park Ranger and a Museum Guide. The hike starts on the Observatory's West Terrace, proceeds up the Charlie Turner trail to the Berlin Forest on the hill just north of the Observatory, and then returns to the West Terrace.

Over the course of about an hour, you’ll walk about half a mile at a very moderate pace. Stops will be made along the way to discuss the history of Griffith Park and objects visible in the evening sky.  You can also spend additional time exploring the observatory, it's theaters, telescopes, and exhibits!

Free telescope viewing is available each evening the observatory is open and skies are clear. Knowledgeable telescope demonstrators are available to guide visitors in observing. Please be aware that the demonstrators must cut off the line for each telescope at 9:30 p.m. or earlier to enable all viewing to be completed by 9:45 p.m. Hours for telescope operation are not the same as for the building (which closes at 10:00 p.m.).

The events for the rest of 2017 will take place on August 2, September 27, October 4, November 29, and December 27.

The walk/talk is about an hour, and is steep earthen trail so you’ll want to wear shoes suited for hiking.

Griffith Observatory....we ❤️ you!!!
