What a lovely afternoon spent at the Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades. The Villa is free but reservations are required. I made the reservations two days before going and there were tickets available. Parking is $15.00. Once inside the museum, we took one of the free tours. There is a garden, architecture and collection tour. There are additional tours available based on the current exhibition. A little disappointed in the collection tour. The tour lasted approximately 50 minutes and the docent only showed us about 5 different objects. I would recommend spending a little less time explaining each piece and including more items in the tour. Otherwise, the Villa is beautiful and the garden with the pool is magnificent. We also ate at the museum. The food is a little expensive and next time I will bring a picnic lunch. The Getty has many places to sit and a picnic area. For $15.00 per car, you can have a nice outing. I too am grateful for the legacy that has been left behind by Mr. Getty. I also, believe for same $15.00 and if you have time you can go to the main Getty Museum on the same day and use the same parking pass.
