Museum Safari: Griffith Park

By popular demand, we are now offering a periodic service from Conejo Valley to Griffith Observatory.

Our first scheduled event is a one day road trip to Griffith on May 9, 2015.

The Griffith Observatory is a landmark site in Los Angeles, California, USA which was recently renovated.

Open hours at Griffith on Saturdays are 10am to 10pm so we will provide you service at 9am (pickup/drop off location TBD), drop you off at Griffith sometime around 10am and be at Griffith before 10pm to ensure entry to the grounds, pick you up drive you back to the same location we got you from and drop you off by around 11pm that same day.

The plan is to rent a vehicle sized for the group going. We will ask every rider for a fee of $30 to cover the rental cost and the cost of fuel and driver to take you to Griffith and back.

You are on your own for the day at Griffith though you are welcome to go as a group or individually. We will also provide you a phone number to contact the driver if everyone wants to leave before the designated time.

Groups and Tour Buses

NO RESERVATION NEEDED: Groups are encouraged to visit the Observatory, whether via school buses, private charter buses, or tour buses. Groups do not need to make any kind of reservation to visit the Observatory or notify the Observatory in advance of their visit.

NO BUS OR SHUTTLE PARKING: Groups in buses coming to the Observatory will be passed through (even when the parking lot is full) and must drop off at the horseshoe driveway in front of the building. NO buses may park or wait at the Observatory at any time. Buses must leave after dropping off passengers and return when they are ready to pick up visitors; there simply is not room at the Observatory for safe parking. There is generally parking available around the Greek Theatre, though this is not guaranteed.

SELF-GUIDED TOURS: We welcome and encourage school and camp groups to visit during public hours of operation. While we are not able to provide tour guides for group tours, our knowledgeable and experienced Museum Guides are located around the building to help make your visit successful.

CHAPERONE RESPONSIBILITIES: Groups with children must have sufficient adult chaperones (1 adult for every 10 children) who must stay with the children at all times. Chaperones must ensure the safety of all children by prohibiting horseplay, running, climbing on exhibits, or other disruptive activity. Chaperones should ensure children do not bring food, drinks, or gum into the building.

BUYING SAMUEL OSCHIN PLANETARIUM SHOW TICKETS: See the guidelines. We are not able to make ticket reservations in advance. We strongly recommend purchasing tickets only for group members who have already arrived, as there can be no refunds, exchanges, or late seating.
Taxis and Limos

Visitors are welcome to arrive via taxi, limo, airport shuttle, and other similar conveyances. NO taxis, limos, or other such vehicles may park or wait at the Observatory at any time. Griffith Park inbound gates close each evening at 10:00 p.m., so if you are being picked up by a cab or friend, please make sure they are in the park before 10:00 p.m.
