worth the time...their collections are world class visit both museums if time allows. Note the Malibu destination requires timed entrance. And the drive may take time...side note, continue on to Pepperdine. What a campus!

The Getty Centre have two of my favourite things - gardens and art. A must visit if you're in LA and its free! A lot of interesting exhibits, from paintings, drawing, sculptures to interiors. We had so much fun spending the afternoon at the getty.

What a place! From the art collections to the gardens - you will not be disappointed (and all for the cost of a $15 parking ticket!).

My children did not come with us on our first trip so I wanted to make sure they didnt miss it on this trip. This is a must see while in LA. The galleries are amazing and the building is a one of a kind. I loved the setting and the gardens. My boys enjoyed them as well.

Beautiful site on the south facing Santa Monica mountains near the Sepulveda Pass west of I-405. Well organized parking and shuttle train keeps the mountain top site clear of the traffic below. Wonderful to stroll the grounds or tour the art collections. Plenty to see for several trips.

You only need to pay for parking, 15usd i think so go in groups and carpool. The train up to the Getty centre is free. Start with the orientation at the theatre where they show a video so you would know roughly what you wanna do here. There are 4 art galleries here. Im not a painting/photos art person so... More
