Amazing tak on an Italian hill town- modernist of course
Nov 2021
Just being there is worth it- the cable journey up to the top- the views- the assortment of buildings. They have changing exhibitions which I found more interesting than their permanent collection. So I would advise seeing what is showing and time yourself accordingly. But it is worth repeated visits.

First trip to LA

Very nice art gallery, it is a lot bigger on the inside than we thought. I got some great pictures of the surrounding area. We were lucky to have some great weather and clear skies during this whole trip.

Long list of reasons why this place is the #1 attraction in L.A.

I forgot to make advance ticket reservations but luckily it was not a busy day and we got in easily. Can't imagine how many people were involved in designing and maintaining such a majestic museum experience. Inside and out, this place is very special. Lots of staff and all were sincerely happy to assist the tourists. This is easily an all day affair. With lunch at their cafe and spotless rest rooms, go for it.

So much to like
Oct 2021
The surroundings are remarkable. So well maintained. The Getty Center collections are very eclectic and filled with culture. Something for everyone. I particularly liked Landscape near Arnheim (SP)? I felt very comfortable with their Covid protocol.

Fantastic museum
Oct 2021
I'm no art critic, but this museum is amazing. There are so many original paintings from 1300-1900 including some of the most famous painters (Van Gogh, Monet, etc). There is a lot to see. The building and grounds are also very nice. And it was free (except for parking)!

A Fantastic Museum Experience
Oct 2021
The Getty Center is not a museum; it's an experience. Beginning with the tram ride up to the top of the hill this complex sits on and continuing through the beautifully landscaped grounds, this place is stunning.

The exhibits are laid out beautifully and the content is truly impressive. The well written explanations of every piece in the collections are fascinating. Also, other museums around the country take note. You don't have to serve horrible, tasteless food in your restaurants. The Getty proves you can serve your guests nutricious, tasty and healthy options. So ditch the dried out chicken fingers Museum of Natural History Washington DC and send some folks out to the Getty for lunch.

In addition to amazing display of art and artifacts, the panoramic views of LA are breathtaking. This is one place which should be at the top of everybody's list to visit in LA (if the LA traffic let's you get there!).

Beautiful place and interesting exhibitions
Sep 2021
This was our second visit to The Getty Center and we loved it!
We reserved free entrance tickets (you pay $20 parking fee) and arrived on our reserved time, everything was well organized and the place wasn't crowded so we felt safe and relaxed.
The exhibitions are very interesting and the gardens are beautiful!

A beautiful haven for art lovers and novices to discover
Oct 2021 • Family
This is a great art museum on a fantastic sight overlooking LA. The gardens are beautiful and the cafe sells lovely food and there is lots of outside but shaded seating available. The art is excellent with many artists of note to see. The tram trip up to the center from the car park is a nice treat also, especially with kids.
