“Gorgeous Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

Not only is the setting and the architecture and gardens stunning, but the art is fascinating too. I went with my teenage son and parked him on a bench near the gardens (he hates art) and enjoyed being in such a magnificent setting. I would go early as the place was starting to get a bit crowded by the time we left (around 11:30) even with the times entries.

“Time well spent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

A wonderful oasis of gardens, art work and buildings make this a worthwhile place to visit. Close to the beaches and restaurants of Malibu, so easy to visit the villa and then head over to Malibu for eats.

“A beautiful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

parking is $15 but free admission (I can't believe it!). This is such a wonderful place. We spent 2 1/2 hours here and really enjoyed this trip. Sign up online and get your ticket first. You need to show the ticket at the entrance.

“Free?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

What attraction is free in LA? Not too many but the Getty Villa is. The parking is not free but it's no big deal because it put you into a great place. We took the tours and were blown away at this Getty guy. What a MAN! to save a preserve all this history in Los Angeles? this man had such vision. we went to the Getty Center two years ago and were also amazed. This is a man, with all his riches, gave back to the community.

“Dreamy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

Stunningly beautiful other than the parking situation.

I almost think I have seen heaven. The ground is so beautiful and serene.

The edge of the garden looks out directly the blue waves of the Pacific Ocean.
