The selection could have included more food choices and variety. But you can't be the location! The view is amazing and to walk the garden is so peaceful and relaxing. What a net place to enjoy lunch.

We had a chance to visit the Getty Center during our recent trip to LA. Like most who have posted here, we were enchanted by the archetecture and scenary. Much of the art was spectactular as well.

Two small bits of advice:

1) Visit on a sunny day. The grounds and gardens are beautful and you need to wall betweeb buildings to get to the various gallieries. Our trip was put off a bit by the cold and rain on the day of our visit.

2) Visit the True Food restaruant. Excellent food, drinks and service.

Well worth the trip

The garden took about 10 minutes to walk through and was very beautiful. The views of the city were also very nice. However, many of the exhibits were closed without any notice, including the exhibits with Van Gogh’s “Irises” and the “Rembrandt Laughing”. These were the 2 pieces we were most excited to see, so our trip was a waste of time.

Wonderful views of the city but when we were there most of the exhibit halls were closed and the gardens were closed.

Very nice grounds and exhibits. Quite a few areas were closed - both 2 art areas and the gift shop. Most disappointedly were the Central Gardens. The reason was because it had rained last night and they were concerned someone would slip on the wet non-paved area and sue. The Van Gogh and others was moved to another area (since its usual area was closed) so they did a good job on that. The tram ride itself was fun! Go at the end of the day and catch the beautiful sunset.

I have been to most of the world renown museums in the world and the Getty is my least favorite. There were so many paintings from artists who were not famous. There were a few Rembrandt paintings and some Impressionists. The artists from Holland were under represented, no Vermeer paintings.
I have been there on two occasions and probably will not return.

Been here a couple of times. Grounds are beautiful, great place to sit and meditate, eat, chill. The museum is just awesome. Exhibits change so if you were here once, you are missing out. From ancient works of art to more modern, the kind of place you just have to see to believe.

Beautiful Sunday visit to this charmless temple of capitalism. As a photographer for fifty years, and familiar with Getty’s preeminent collection of photographs, I was shocked and dismayed that because the Photography Center was closed, there were virtually no photographs on exhibit. Brutalist architecture. Terrible use of space. Seems to have rather little exhibition space for 110 acres of spectacularly expensive construction. Lots of visitors enjoying the campus. Stimulating but vexing visit…

Visited on a weekday afternoon with our kids (5 and 7) and had a blast. Great balance between art, architecture, nature, history, etc. They had little activities to keep the kids entertained (e.g. search for particular exhibits or architectural features). The grounds are beautiful and spacious. And free admission! Just the cost of parking, which was well worth it. Highly recommend.
