Really a beautiful place, you just breath art. Even our little ones loved, great views. Our girls loved the audio tour. Was an easy ride from LA.

No one goes to the Getty Center without being impressed with it all. The architecture is amazing, the art collection is complete and the garden and grounds are beautiful, not to mention the spectacular views. We really appreciated the audio tour as well.

Had a delightful day at The Getty. Took some tours learned much.. Did some exploring on our own. Loved the building design and the art work. Parking was $15. After that everything was free but the meals. Want to go back.

Yeah ... it's a must-see when you're in LA. I'm not a huge art nut, so I can't even really tell you specifically what's there. I can just tell you there's basically something for everyone ... and the museum itself is just gorgeous.

This place is worth visiting just to see the museum building complex. We were here 6 hours and easily could have stayed longer. Excellent art selection; definitely one of the best museums in the U.S.

Even if you're not a huge art aficionado, there is so much to do and see here. We went on a guided garden tour, a guided architectural tour, and a guided "highlights" tour, all of which were fabulous because the docents added so much to the experience. And it's all free (except for the parking). There are also free iPod... More
