The Getty Center is on top of a mountain, and to get there you get on a free shuttle to the top from the parking lot below. As you enter the shuttle, you feel as though you are embarking on a true cultural journey (which you are!) Separated from all of Los Angeles below, the Center has multiple exhibitions going on simultaneously. The buildings themselves are beautiful and the gardens fabulous, making this a place to go without even checking out the amazing art within. This place is always a highlight of every visitor we have had from the West Coast, Europe, etc. It is a true "must-see!" (Check out the special materials for childrens' visits to the Getty--they are terrific! PS the gift shop is a fantastic one, and the cafeteria is great!

This is a really great museum and I would suggest you go. You learn a lot of history and you also get to take great photos. super cool experience. Make sure to bring a camera with no flash.

Love this place. Gorgeous views, and incredibly helpful staff.

The best part of the Getty is the fact they have traveling exhibitions; bringing some of the world's best art to our LA doorstep.

Everything about The Getty Center is amazing. The architecture, the art collection, the gardens, the views...I'm not sure it gets much better than this. Not to mention - it's free to visit! This was worth every minute of the stop. We were there only a few hours, but you could easily make it most of your day.

My wife and I visited the Central Garden and then had an engaging Collection Highlights Tour. We commend our Tour Guide Pia for the engaging way that she told the stories behind some of the paintings and sculpture pieces, particularly Henry Weekes’ “Bust of an African Woman,” that made them come alive in meaningful ways. She also focused on Claude Monet paintings of Rouen Cathedral and Sunrise, a diptych of Virgin and Child by Jean Fouquet, a painting of Musicians’ Brawl by Georges de la Tour, and a sculpture of Angel of the Citadel by Marino Marini.

I am not arguing that the Getty Museum is a better venue to see some of the world’s great art; but the Getty’s more manageable crowds enabled us to see more of what we wanted and our September, 2019 Getty experience was probably more enjoyable than our September, 2018 Louvre experience.
