If you love museums and you love art, this one is a Must. The artworks exposed are beautiful (there are some really famos ones). But most of all, the best thing about it is the view of the city, breathtaking!

Just a pleasure to stroll around the complex grounds, around the gardens and magnificent vistas. Entrance is free, parking is not. The museum has permanent and rotating exhibits. Many works of art and antiquities. Great place for an al fresco picnic. Although there's food sold on the premises, you can also bring your own. Time it so you don't miss the spectacular sunset!- November 2017

Incredible architecture, great views of the city, fun tram that takes you into the mountainside. Great museum, but I love the gardens the most!

Free admission to the Getty Center. The only thing you have to do is pay for parking which is worth every penny. Great place to take family and have a picnic on the grass.

This was by far the best time I had in LA. The mall was so nicely decorated with Christmas theme. Sure far had the best Christmas time ever. Huge Christmas tree, Musical fountain, Santa Village, Shops and restaurants.

All you have to pay for is parking. Everything else is complimentary outside of food, drinks, and alcoholic beverages. The train ride up to the Getty museum was beautiful. The museum is indoor/ outdoor and gives you breathtaking views of LA. Definitely a must see!

Los Angeles likes to keep it's art perched on top of a hill in an earthquake proof building protected from floods and fire. That's because The Getty hosts some of the world's greatest! You can spend a couple hours here and take some time strolling through the gardens, eating at the restaurant and taking in the views of Southern California.

The most beautiful museum I've been to! the view of Los Angeles is CRAZY too. Everything about the architecture is beautiful, I was even amazed at how beautiful the doors opened. For the price of free, the Getty is well worth the visit.

The admission was completely free but the parking was a little expensive. However, it was completely worth it! This place was truly beautiful and serene with an authentic and wide arrange of art with artists such as Van Gogh. I especially enjoyed the gardens and views.

It took us three trips to LA, but we finally got to the Getty Center (tried going once before, but my GPS wanted to take me the wrong way). We only allotted ourselves a couple of hours here, so we only saw a very small portion of what there was to see, but it was still interesting and fun to do.

Be prepared to walk miles and miles and up and down stairs! Best time to visit is in the summer when outdoor programs are on.
