We always enjoy our visits to the Getty Center. It is wonderful arts center and it is free, you only pay for parking. We always try to visit when the center has a new exhibition.

A must see museum in Los Angeles and a wonderful place to take visiting guests. Parking can be difficult and fills up, so you may want to take a cab. The view is extraordinary and the art collection is wonderful.

I absolutely loved this place. Its a really nice place for kids as well. You can take a guided tour if necessary, but I don't actually suggest it.

The location of the Getty has to be among the most beautiful parcels of land in LA -- the views of the city and the ocean are fantastic...and that is to say nothing about the quality of the art and gardens. Lovely visit, and free too (less the very reasonable $10-15 parking)!

This is a very elegant restaurant at the Getty Center. The menu is interesting and food excellent. We appreciated the fine service and the fact that reservations are honored. At times they cannot accommodate location requests but that is generally not a problem.

Tourists or Californians: Spectacular views, luscious gardens, free entry (just a parking fee if you go by auto), good food. The staff always treated us as honored guests.

The collections are neither contemporary, nor exciting, but the Getty is worth a visit for several reasons, including its Richard Meier-designed buildings, its remarkable site and views, and its changing exhibitions.

Oen one evening a week, it is nice to visit the museum late in the day and have dinner in the restaurant. The experience is better than the food whic is upscale, fine dining but someone mises the mark. No matter - go for the experience.

The views of Los Angeles from The Getty Center are awesome. You're up and away from the buzz and busy of the city and surrounded by the most beautiful architecture. We took the architectural tour. It helped us see the design in the building and its surroundings. The museum is filled with beautiful statuary and artworks. The gardens are a... More
