Most beautiful museum I have ever seen. We didn't realise there is no entrance fee for the Getty which made for a pleasant surprise! Everything in the Getty fits perfectly together. The way you get up there, the building itself, the patio, the views... And that is without the exhibitions they have. You can not visit Los Angeles without visiting... More

The Getty is something of a regular stop for us, both for personal enjoyment and as a great place to take guests visiting from out of town. Obviously, the big draw is the varied collection of art, some permanent and others rotating in for a limited time. The buildings that house these collections and the grounds upon which it is...

It might take you all morning, but it is worthy if you love art. Beautiful gardens full of colors and you get a great view from LA.

This is the best museum in the world value wise. Free shuttle to and from the museum There was an original Van Gogh on loan the time we visited. The view is commendable. The garden is nice to stroll around and or just relax. We had been to museums around the world so a lot of art outside this place... More

The museum itself is in a stunning position and has marvellous views in all directions. There are many good pieces of art (not just the well known Van Gogh irises) and it is worth allowing several hours to see everything properly.
