We loved everything about this magnificent Center. It is spacious, airy, comfortable and has the most interesting displays. We loved the Manet exhibit and the Photography Area. I wish we had a bit more time to spend exploring.

This was a fairly last minute decision to go, so I didn't do enough research beforehand (like reading the TripAdvisor reviews) and went with "highlights" and the Getty website. The most misleading thing to me was the suggested time allotment of 2-3 hours. This is...More

This is truly a not miss site when visiting Los Angeles. The trees on the property were planted 10 years before the Getty Center was built, resulting in magnificent landscaping. Don't miss going to the Getty Center!
