Beautiful museum that has many wonderful exhibitions to explore! Also, the views are spectacular to enjoy. The architecture and the grounds are well kept and you can relax in between going to the several different buildings to choose from. Even the monorail ride is fun....More

I've been the The Getty Center many, many times. However, usually I would say the grounds are nicer than the collection...especially when California isn't under drought lockdown and all of their beautiful fountains are full and bubbling. I especially love walking down into the gardens,...More

When the Getty first opened we went for the architecture and a few collections. Today the collection and traveling shows I would consider first class. They have a regular tour of "the best of the collection" which is a good introduction for those who are...More
