“seeking to inspire curiosity about visual art”
Getty Museum The Getty on the hilltop. Find art from medieval manuscripts to contemporary photography at the Getty Center in Brentwood, just off the 405. The Getty Center's permanent exhibit houses the art collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum. The collection's highlights include: pre-20th-century European paintings, drawings, illuminated manuscripts, sculpture, and decorative arts; 19th- and 20th-century American and international photographs; contemporary and modern sculpture.
This place is awesome... so much to see and for free... you are also treated to an unbeatable view of the city from it's perch :)
If you see the Getty Villa and Getty Center on the same day (except Monday's I think) you only have to pay for parking once.
The Getty Center is a wonderful (and FREE) place to visit! There is a charge for parking. My children enjoyed the tram ride up to the museum grounds. There is a great deal of variety here; paintings, sculptures, mosaics, old Bibles, the list goes on and on. The view of L.A. from the upper floors is just incredible! My entire family enjoyed our visit here. We visited the Getty Villa on the same day and found the Getty Center to be far more impressive. Definitely worth your time, a wonderful day trip!
The Architecture alone is something worth experiencing with beautiful views of the city as well as the ocean. The exhibits are very well curated. It's a wonderful trip all around and you can certainly spend the entire day there soaking it all in.
