Brilliant

An incredible modern museum campus with nice grounds, gardens, views, and a reasonable collection of paintings, sculptures, and objets d’art. Rembrandt, Monet, Renoir, Sezanne, Van Gogh, Goya, El Greco, Canaletto, Lorraine, Turner and many others feature, albeit many with a single work. You can spend easily more than half a day if you want to see all there is to see. A couple of “treasure hunts” for children make it more interesting for them. Food options on the grounds are quite workable, but expectedly overpriced.

Modern gardens and art from all eras
Sep 2021 • Friends
We made online reservations for 10 am on Saturday. Upon our arrival to the entrance of the parking lot we were directed to our parking spot after getting our ticket from the machine. The payment for parking is the entrance fee to the art center, the cost is $20.
The building and gardens are modern and beautiful. The art inside is from all eras, large collection with temporary exhibits. Prior to covid they had different events for families. We really enjoy our visits here.

Stunning museum
Aug 2021
My family absolutely loved the Getty center. Great art and being free (minus parking) was such a plus. Gift shop was sweet too. If you go make sure to check out the newly acquired Artemisia Gentileschi piece Lucretia in E102--truly spectacular

Nice, but....
Aug 2021
A nice overall activity but one lacking the "wow" factor. The collections were interesting but lacked any pizzaz. Maybe I am spoiled by other world-class museums.

Incredible displays, immaculate grounds, fascinating location, quality around every corner. One trip was not enough to see everything.

Go for the experience, not the art
Jul 2021
It's an experience - feels like entering a different world, very luxurious, and removed from realities of LA. Everything is grand. The architecture is great, the tram that takes from the parking lot is cute, the gardens are magnificent, but the art collection itself is meh (apart from a few nice works)

Joy - art
Jul 2021
After over one year of being starved for art, this was the perfect museum to visit. Keeping strict Covid protocols, but still welcoming art lovers in this gorgeous setting. Views of Los Angeles as far as your eyes can see, and all the most beautiful painting and sculpture

Getty Center - Beauty on a Hilltop
Aug 2021
I was in LA to get my passport from the Federal Building and had 2 hours and thought, hey, the Getty is 10 minutes away.

I didn't have a reservation, but luckily for me there was a cancellation. What a beautiful place. Compared to the hustle and bustle below, the grounds of the Getty Museum offers an oasis of beauty and culture. The grounds were just incredible and the exhibits were so well done and the artwork was displayed expertly.

The views of the city from high atop the hill are amazing. While I only had 2 hours, I could have spent all day! And, the icing on the cake - the staff are fantastic!! Warm, welcoming and very helpful!! Can't wait to return.

And for those wondering, they followed all Covid-19 requirements, so bring your mask and remember to practice social distancing.
