The observatory was closed when we visited, but the building is beautiful, and the view overlooking Los Angeles and the Hollywood sign in the distance was outstanding!

The views are great, but the scientific exhibits were the better surprise for me. This is an actual functional observatory, not just a pretty building. And the exhibits are engaging, even if you're not an astronomy buff.

What I like best about the observatory is it some example of classic art deco architecture. It's got some cool gadgets inside and it is a fantastic view of Los Angeles. And there are many occasions. The only time I didn't enjoy it when it was closed for renovations some 15 years ago. If you're in the area go see it but I wouldn't break your neck trying to get there are there lots of things to do in Los Angeles

I've never had a bad day at the Observatory. If you have the time, hike up the mountain instead of driving!

Amazing view from the area and the outside of the Obervatory is nice too. Unfortunaltely due to Covid Sars 19 it was closed. However, still worth to get up there early monrings on weekend and enjoy the walk and the view.
