What an amazing place architecturally and artistically! Each visually interesting building housed exquisite art pieces or period furniture. "Oh WOW! Look at that!", was the catch phrase of the day. The gardens were just as amazing even in the rain. Well worth a visit and it is only $15 for all day parking.

Amazing - you should go! I wasn't sure the Getty Center would live up to my expectations, but it far surpassed them. I couldn't believe how beautiful the buildings and gardens were! Free admission, and even free audio tours are available on iPod touches that they loan out. Tram ride up is fun, and panoramic views of LA were at every turn of the museum. It is an architectural phenomenon, and the art collection is diverse and interesting. Cafes had many indoor and outdoor spots to have a nice lunch with great views.

If you have not been to the Ghetty in a while, get back soon. The collection of impressionists has really grown (actually, so has everything.) But most inspiring is the architecture and the harmonious landscaping--all of the best view hill in LA. Go on a clear day--fall, winter, spring after the rain.

A visit to the Getty Center is definitely worth the trouble it takes to get there.. they have a great collection of art, the gardens and the views are AMAZING, and even the staff is refreshingly alert. I can't think of one reason not to stop in when you're in LA!

We had only a short time there, but saw the Gardens which were a delight. Our tour guide Delores was a hoot!
