This is an absolute must for a trip to Malibu! The art work, statues, structures and Gardens!! Just breathtaking. Be certain to get your admission tickets in advance. We truly didn't want to leave. It felt like a European museum. Very impressive.

We registered online and just indicated how many in our party. They sent an eticket to my phone for each person in our group. The fee is a parking fee so you do not actually pay per person.
