“It's cool, I guess...”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

This is a very nice facility and it's free! I guess I'm just not a huge art person, which is why I probably wasn't overwhelmed by anything. I enjoyed the history of the displays more than anything. Being the #1 rated attraction in LA, I definitely had my hopes up. I can't say my expectations were met, but that's probably not a fault of the Getty Center itself. Just my own relative lack of interest in art.

“A "Don't Miss" for visit to LA”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

Art and architecture come together for a wonderful experience of sight, mind and spirit. For me, one day is not enough to enjoy everything. Fantastic view of LA in all directions.

“A beautiful museum ”
Reviewed July 29, 2014 via mobile

I love to bring my family here. However, I could come here alone just to admire the art and ambiance. It's beautiful: the art, culture, architecture, and even the view make this a wonderful place to spend the day.

“Calm and relaxing environment”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

Well worth a visit, not so much for the art itself but for the complete atmosphere. It has a variety of gardens and architecturally interesting spaces that also add to its art collection. Great for art/architecture lovers.

“Great place for families”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Our GPS was ridiculous..i entered the address on the website and it brought us to a neighborhood!!! Luckily the neighbors were kind enough to tell us the other address which eventually lead us to the museum. He told us that he has hundreds of ppl coming everyday....HA!!!how ridiculous is that? However, the getty center is really worth visiting.
