The J.Paul Getty Museum is a must if you are in or near Los Angeles! Splendid views, wonderful Canterbury Cathedral windows exhibition (a once in a lifetime) as well as others and Getty was an excellent art collector!

Amazing exhibits and BEAUTIFUL gardens. Great view of Los Angeles. They also serve alcohol. Take a free tour so that you can get more knowledge. Admission is free as long as you pay for parking.

Perched on a hilltop, the Getty Center is a destination unto itself. It's worth the trip and worth spending the better part of a day there. Between the art collection, the architecture, and the gardens, there's much nourishment for the senses and the spirit for all ages.

It is a little expensive to get to by taxi but you can do it easily by bus MIT was raining the day we went and the gardens were closed but we could overlook them from the many terraces

My wife and I have been before but it was great to return. Quite simply this is just the 'best' place to visit. The artwork is truly amazing displayed in great surroundings. Other displays also fantastic. Great views of LA from all over. Do the architectural tour as this is really interesting telling you all about the building, how it was constructed. Truly another memorable visit.
