Getty Center


We had such a great time exploring the Getty Center and I must say that they offer the most interactive art programs I have ever seen!  There is everything from Art Detective Cards that send you on a scavenger hunt around the museum grounds to discover works of art to a Family Room where you can get hands on with art supplies. There are also festivals, art programs, on-line resources and garden concerts for the whole family offered at different times during the week throughout the year.


Don’t  worry about admission because it’s free! Yay! Don’t try coming on Mondays though because they’re closed. Unfortunately, you have to pay for parking, but good news is they have handicapped-accessible spaces located on the entry level of the parking structure and electric vehicle car owners have plug-ins on a first-serve basis. The museum is also accessible by public transportation so make getting there half the fun!


We did a lot of research for the show! Though we couldn’t visit every destination, we did want to show you what else we found.

Do you love art? Are you a history buff that appreciates the Stone Age to the fall of the Roman Empire? The Getty Villa houses a collection of 44,000 Greek, Etruscan and Roman antiques. More than 1,000 works-of-art is viewable to the public and exhibitions contain 7,000 years of ancient art. Unlike the Getty Center, the Villa is closed on Tuesdays and admission is free, when you get an advance timed-entry ticket.
