Amazing place – striking and beautiful, with great vistas, gardens, huge open courtyards, and world class artwork. Not child-oriented, although the kids did enjoy the small family room with fun interactive exhibits. Admission is amazingly free, although you pay $15 to park and take the...More

This was the main focus of our weekend visit to LA and we had a great time. We took an architectural tour of the grounds before launching into the collections and are glad we did. The buildings themselves are masterpieces. To understand the museum it's...More

Breathtaking views, especially from the deck off the top floor of the west pavilion. The travertine stone buildings are airy & grand... so beautiful!!! No expense was spared in construction. The grounds and gardens are unique, colourful and artistically laid out. The art collection can’t...More

The Getty Center is a must visit if you are visiting Los Angeles. The architecture of the Getty Center is beautiful. The gardens are gorgeous. The artwork is excellent and present in a very orderly fashion. The docents are very knowledgeable and friendly.

We visited for a quick look around as time was tight. The car park is $15, museum free. Food in the cafe was decent and reasonably priced. The museum is nice if art is your thing. The views are amazing.

We only allowed ourselves 3 hours which is just not enough time. This place is a Campus and we went on two free tours. The architectural one was good but lacked depth, still worthwhile though and the other on the main exhibition with an Egyptian...More

The Getty is a cluster of imposing, almost domineering buildings looming over the 405 Freeway just above Sunset. The scale doesn’t feel daunting close up, though, and there are pleasant galleries spread among several buildings. Do walk around the place. Watch for special shows of...More

Don’t get me wrong, the art inside is awesome BUT for me, the attraction is the grounds! The gardens are nothing short of breathtaking and the views of the hills and the city is off the charts. Love having a picnic in the gardens. You...More

There are elevators. Wheelchairs are located in the shuttle boarding area. There is also a nice ramp through the garden.
