    The best museum I have ever been to, and I've been to a lot of museums. It has great views from up above, the gardens are beautiful, the building is crazy, and the art collection is fantastic.

    These two exhibits are worth experiencing before they close on 2.5.12: Crosscurrents in L.A. Painting and Sculpture 1950-1970 & Greetings from L.A.: Artists and Publics 1945-1980.

    Take advantage of all the beautiful, natural light at the Getty. From the views, the art, the architecture, and the gardens - there is so much to shoot, any time of day.

    The views of LA are a thing of beauty! Such an enjoyable atmosphere. IF you need to get around LA without a car, use the UBER app. If you use the code: UBERNEF you get $20 on your first ride!

    When coming up the ramp from the garden to the museum ramp tap your palms on the wall and it makes sounds.

    Always take one of the free tours - they're 45 minutes, but the docents are fantastic. Check the Information Desk for tour times.

    The Getty museum itself is one of the most innovative and contemporary buildings, I have ever seen. The art works consisted of ancient European art and medieval tapestries. which surprised me

    Park early then walk the 3/4mi up alongside the tram to grab a coffee atop your own private hilltop retreat. Then take the 11am Collection Highlights tour.

    Although you can buy drinks just before you enter the exhibition areas, you can't actually hold the drinks once you're inside any exhibit building - so get ready to shove them in your pocket or bag!
