This place reproduces an italian villa from antiquity and although it's a fake, it's still very good. There's a good collection of greek art, some temporary exhibitions and the architecture is amazing, with a greek open air theater and beautiful gardens. There's also a very nice cafe, with tasty options (and not super expensive) and all the facilities are great, with free self guides and guided tours every hour.
It's free to entry (just make sure you print your entrance before), but you have to pay to park. You can go by cab, it's around US$ 25 from santa monica area. It's also possible to use public transportation (metrobus stops just in front of its gates and they have a shuttle to go to the museum), but be aware it may take a while waiting for the bus.
It's a lovely place to spend a morning or afternoon, I highly recommend it.
