Full description
Learn about modern architecture, science, movie history, and the history of Los Angeles. Begin in the Observatory’s central rotunda, where you’ll gaze at overhead murals inspired by Greek myth. Next, learn about the inventor Nikola Tesla and his 50,000-volt Tesla Coil, which is on exhibit. Discover how the solar system works and look through a telescope to see sun spots.

Experience a spectacular show with the help of a Zeiss star projector and a state-of-the-art digital projection system. Descend into the depths of space and view the night sky like you’ve never before. Learn more about seismology, the L.A. earthquakes and the Pacific Rim of Fire as you stand next to an active seismograph. 

At night, wait in line for the 12-inch Zeiss telescope. One-of-a-kind and German-made, it gives viewers an unparalleled and intimate look at the planets and stars, depending on the weather and schedule.
