This is a beautiful museum with lots to see and a wide variety of art. You can take time to have lunch here or a glass of wine. Stroll the garden and take in the magnificent views of Los Angeles. Pay for parking then take the free tram up to the entrance. Admission is free to the Getty Center

Every visit to Los Angeles must include a visit to The Getty Center. The museum its architecture art collection and gardens are inspirational and beautiful. The views of Los Angeles from downtown to the Pacific Ocean are breathtaking. And the dining and shopping options are superb.

Arrive early and take your time. Enjoy each building slowly and be sure to take in the terraces and patios. After you finish with the museum, be sure to check out the garden.
