AOL Travel Editor’s Review

The Observatory is one of LA’s prime landmarks, visible from much of the city and from airplanes approaching from the east. It’s best known as the Deco building that appeared in film Rebel without a Cause. The Observatory is also a great family outing. State of the art telescopes, a planetarium and frequent lectures and events make it fascinating for all ages.

  Cool place. In the evening it provides a wonderful view of LA. Nice old architecture. A classic.
