My first time going to the Getty Center was a Major Surprise. After driving past it on the freeway for years, a friend ask me to take her there. I think I enjoyed it more than she did ! I was truly surprised that the center has Botanical gardens, JAZZ concerts outdoors sculpture's and a Kings Ransom in fine art.

We took my 8 year old & 5 year old godchildren for their first trip to an art museum. They loved it! The Family Room was a great introduction to the Center for them.

For the cost of parking (or a bus ticket) you can spend the day immersed in fascinating collections of art, historical books and the like. The grounds are beautiful and there is a nice cafe. Loved it!

The charge for parking was minimal and worth it for the tram ride to the museum. Get a coffee and enjoy the amazing views. On another day go visit the Malibu Getty for amazing views too.

A true treasure in Los Angeles and completely free. A normal person would never think they would get to see such masterpieces in their lifetime yet there they are (rotating exhibits) right there at the top of the hill, right off the 405. This museum is one of my favorite places in Los Angeles. The only thing I DON'T like... More

This Centre is located in the most perfect place to spend several hours. The views of LA from the magnicent gardens are excellent and gardens themselves are amazing. Walking through the museum is a delight to the eyes and mind. The security staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. It was winter when I was there so there were no crowds.... More
