If you like a good art collection, a awesome view of the city, and a beautiful garden definitely this is a place that you want to visit! This is a really relaxing place. I love it ! To enter is free but you will need to pay the parking it was 20 per car.

The Getty Center itself is a work of art. The buildings and grounds are beautiful. And within these buildings is some amazing artwork and plenty of it. Gorgeous gardens and statuary. There is paid parking onsite and then a tram ride up to the center. No additional expense required for hours of enjoyment. Of course there are several coffee carts... More

The Getty Center is a terrific place to take visitors to the area. The paintings, drawings and other artistic displays are spectacular, of which some are rotated. The location and views in all directions are gorgeous. Parking can be problematic, through there is transportation from the parking area to the center. Highly recommended.

First, I'm an architect and find the Getty Center itself to be a work of art. However, don't miss the 'real' art - that is on display within this fabulous facility. You name it, they have it - from ancient art to modern, including everything in between. And you won't be disappointed - there are indeed great works by some... More

This was my second trip The Getty Center as part of visit to West Hollywood. There is pay parking or one can take thebus--yes you can get there by bus-- or Lyft, Uber or Cab. Aside from parking and the wonderful cafe with views, The Getty charges nothing for the tram which takes visitors from the parking area to the... More

Wonderful day at both Gettys. Park and pay at one, then bring your receipt and get free parking at the other. Well worth multiple visits to enjoy the gardens, views and oh yeah...art. Will return to take some tours..the architecture,buildings and views are truly the stars here

Honestly this place is good just for the view of the city, walking around the beautiful grounds, and viewing the beautiful architecture of the building. The trip is worth it for that whether you like art or not. I'm not a huge art person but still very much enjoyed the trip. There's no modern art here. I got bored with... More

Wear comfortable shoes and get ready to see some truly amazing artifacts and art. The views from the complex are also breathtaking. A nice comfortable ride on a tram to the top of the mountain, great food and nice people always ready to help.

The art, the views, the gardens, the friendly atmosphere - all make this one of my favorite places to visit and to dine in their excellent restaurant. Makes the LA traffice worthwhile, since the center makes it easy for you once you get there.
