Art, astronomy, and the best views in all of Los Angeles

The Getty Center and Griffith Observatory are two of LA’s best landmarks. See both in one perfect day.

Our guide to Griffith Observatory and the Getty Center Tour

We’ll begin at the Getty, which features thousands of paintings, sculptures, and decorative arts inside and beautifully landscaped gardens outdoors. Your guide will show you the highlights on a 30-minute tour and allow an hour of free time so you can enjoy the art and grounds at your own pace. See paintings by Rembrandt and van Gogh, ancient Roman statues, French furniture, pottery, porcelain, and much more.

Then we’ll head to Griffith Observatory. This portion of the tour was designed by some of the observatory’s former employees as well as an astronomical artist that worked on the current planetarium show. We’ll enhance your experience by taking you on a curated journey through the exhibits. Here again, we’ll allow you plenty of free time to explore at your leisure.

And get ready for the incredible photos. There are so many Instagrammable shots at both locations. You’ll be blown away by these stellar West Coast views.

Don’t forget the opportunity to add a show in the world-famous planetarium with our optional upgrade available for ages 5 and older. It’s a 40-minute show through outer space with live narration in a high-tech theater.

Ready to discover the wonders of the Getty Center and the Griffith Observatory all in one perfect day? We can’t wait to show you the real stars of LA!
