The Once and Future Griffith Observatory DVD (narrated by Leonard Nimoy)
After a four and one half year renovation, Griffith Observatory reopened to the public in 2006. In this exceptional video, Leonard Nimoy takes you on a personal tour through the renovation and expansion of Griffith J. Griffith's legacy, Griffith Observatory in beautiful Griffith Park.
Mr. Nimoy narrates the colorful history of Griffith Observatory, using stills, movies and never-before-seen WWII documentary footage. The tour takes you through the entire Observatory, highlighting the new state-of-the-art exhibits throughout (read more below...)
From the outside of the building visitors see only the beautifully restored exterior. From the inside you will see how world-renowned architects, scientists, engineers, exhibit designers and fabricators, imagined and created the additional 35,000 square feet of public space.
You will want to view this over and over again.
The Once and Future Griffith Observatory comes with a 12 minute bonus feature, NASA: Into the Future, a look at space exploration in the next 25 years.
