About Griffith Observatory

Griffith Observatory was built in 1935 to encourage the public’s engagement with the cosmos. There are so many ways to enjoy this educational destination. Use any of the public telescopes, listen to a lecture in the Leonard Nimoy Event Horizon Theater, or step into the 290-seat Samuel Oschin Planetarium for a guided tour of the universe. If you’re traveling at the right time (during a solstice, equinox, eclipse, or meteor shower), organize a group trip to any of the observatory’s space celebrations. Looking to engage with a community of astronomers? Griffith Observatory hosts a monthly star party, inviting amateurs and professional stargazers to use the famous Zeiss telescope and several portable telescopes stationed around the grounds. Whatever brings you to Griffith Observatory’s mountaintop location, charter a Los Angeles bus rental for your class, team, company, or amateur astronomers club.

Why charter a bus to visit Griffith Observatory

Keeping your group together is one of the many benefits of buses, but the best thing about chartering a bus in Los Angeles is the driver. Parking is limited in Griffith Park, but a driver can drop you off at the observatory and then pick you up when you’re finished exploring the solar system. If you’re traveling within the LA area, a school bus is perfect. But if you’re coming from over two hours away, rent a coach bus for its extra amenities.

About the location and the surrounding area

The Griffith Observatory is located within Griffith Park, the very same park that’s home to the LA Zoo, the Autry Museum of the American West, three golf courses, and wildlife trails lined with oak trees, lilacs, sage, and sumac. Below the park is Los Feliz, a neighborhood steeped in Hollywood history. Once the site of major film studios like Disney, the area is full of monuments to Hollywood’s golden era. You can take a trip back in time with a visit to the Vista Theater, a single-screen cinema built in 1923, or tour the area’s A-list homes. Griffith Park and Los Feliz represent old school LA at its finest, and they’re still attracting visitors in search of an intimate encounter with the stars.
