What you'll do

First I'll start with a little background of the Griffith Park & how the Observatory has been depicted in cinema as we wait for the whole party to join us. Once everyone has joined us I will begin explaining the history behind its conception, construction, and current exhibits. After moving inside I will take them on a thoroughly planned out tour of each of the museums three levels. I will also lecture on the historical level exhibits; such as the dark history behind the Griffith Observatory, the Foucault Pendulum, the Tesla Coil, and much more! Next we will continue to the lower levels where you will watch a free show, learn more about our place in the universe, and our solar system. Book through me and you will also get a chance to experience a surprise 4.5 billion years in the making! If you are interested in a guided hike to the summit of Mt. Lee to the Hollywood sign, can be arranged for an additional fee. Or if you want to know how to get to the sign or just closer I can provide maps/help for free. I also know the best locations to get photos:)

***MESSAGE FOR DATES IF NOT SEEN. I LIKELY CAN ACCOMMODATE :) *** Hello friends let me be the first in welcoming you to Griffith Observatory & Park! I'm Hank & I have the privileged of showing you everything the Griffith has to offer. First a little bit about me, I worked for over 2 years at G.O. with LA Park Services so rest assured you are with the best! Before living in LA I lived in SF where I attended USF and earned my degree in History while working at Alcatraz National Park.When you book an experience with me you know you're getting something memorable. The G.O. receives 1000s of visitors daily. When you book me you'll be able to learn all the hacks to help your party avoid the crowds, find FREE PARKING, and make the most of your time. I can also give you tips on where to eat and what else you can experience while in LA.
