Check this place out on a clear night. About a one hour presentation in their theater and then you get a chance to look at the solar system through the big telescope. It was a full moon the night we went. What a thrill.

There were only five of us during the 'show'. It was pretty well done and there was a lot to see. Took a five year old, think that this is a little young - probably need to be 10+ to truly enjoy.

They have many different types of shows throughout the year, but there Christmas show is really worth while. It traces the biblical and historical significance of the Star of Bethlehem.

If you love the universe you will love it here! I am currently living in the Los Angeles area and Griffith is insane, but I adored Aikens small version...a great place to spark the mind.

We saw both shows they are offering right now. Mars and "Blown Away- Weather." They are getting a new system this fall so I can't wait to go back and see the new programs. The telescope in the observatory is worth the trip. We could...More

The museum was average they had a couple of nice displays. We saw the "show" a primitive light display type experience that was worth the $8.00 admission fee. But the highlight was looking through the telescope and seeing Mars and Saturn. Must do that!
