Awesome place to visit if you only went for the view. The art work is fantastic and rare. The 16th century furniture was awesome for a woodworker!

Maybe it was a mistake of mine to come here, but I did not realize what kind of museum I was getting into. I usually enjoy all different kinds of art museums when I get a chance as I have been to the Honolulu Museum of Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Orlando Museum of Art, and several others. The garden... More

What a way to spend a day. From the moment you arrive and park your car, you enter a different "zone" - the zone of culture, beauty and history. There is plenty to see in the galleries but also outside, the architecture and location is breathtaking. The beautiful gardens and relaxing atmosphere makes you want to stay for a whole... More

Budget a few hours to tour the galleries, the gardens and sit awhile studying the architecture. At the end, you'll feel calmer. Also; skip the tram ride up & down for a present, brisk walk.

A large expansive museum high up over the city of Los Angeles. Each building housed something different, whether is was Renaissance Art or Photography, etc. Beautiful views of Los Angeles from the high elevation. You easily could spend 5-6 hours here. Great for the whole family. An educational experience.

If you are going to visit The Getty, plan on being there for several hours. The collections and the gardens are fantastic. As far as food or refreshments go, you are somewhat limited to the following: There is the Getty Restaurant for elegant, but somewhat expensive, dining (reservations recommended) or the Getty Café for casual, cafeteria-style food. There is also... More

We spent a day at the Getty centre and villa. It is located about an hours drive from Hollywood. The villa and main centre are 30 minutes apart by car. No shuttle operates between them. It was difficult to get a taxi for 5 people to the villa which was annoying. You need to book tickets for the villa on... More

You'll need to spend all day here, just to get a glipse of a piece of this magnificient property! And, don't fret, if you don't have a full day, then just walk around, check out the views from the property, and eat at the upscale restaurant - it's a little pricey, but well worth it! The views are stunning, and... More

This museum is a must see! You park down below and ride a tram up to the museum. It's a gorgeous series of buildings. Can spend a whole day here. There's a formal restaurant, casual restaurant and snack bar. There's several exhibits so it's best to decide what you want to see (three exhibits is usually my limit) and go... More
