    Entry to museum is free but $15 to park. You have to wait to catch a trolly to get to the museum or walk about .5 Miles up hill. Not a bad walk but would be cautious if you have strollers or elders

    If you are an art nut, definitely go here. Great art from many periods in history.

    The place is great, it is spacious and offers astonishing views to the whole LA area. As a museum I did not find anything very special compared to other art museums, but wonderful overall experience.

    The art collection is divided between the buildings by time period, and the Getty’s collection of eighteenth-century French decorative arts is especially renowned. Read more

    Plan on early arrival for good parking in garage. Museum entry is free but parking is $15. Tour guides are excellent and helpful. Look for children's activities which are also excellent.

    The museum's official Sketching Gallery encourages guests to literally draw inspiration from traditional art pieces. Guests can work with an easel or at a shared table, and it's complimentary.

    Extremely beautiful center, free for the public but parking costs $15. Bring a camera and food because what they sell is a bit overpriced and only mediocre!
