Reserve your free tickets online before you go. The art is mostly antiquities but the buildings and gardens are the real attraction. $15 to park. Cafe is expensive but you can bring your own food to the picnic area.

The Egyptian exhibition was interesting. I enjoyed the place but I don’t agree it is the number 1 place in TripAdvisor to visit

How far is Anaheim? I’d get a hired car if not an uber as it’s better to get this. I’m not sure if there are your companies that take you there but this may be possible. Enjoy it’s an amazing villa!
