The buildings, grounds, and views make this one of the most special places on the planet. Tie in great art and some good restaurant choices, The Getty has to be the best place to spend a day anywhere!

We loved everything about this magnificent Center. It is spacious, airy, comfortable and has the most interesting displays. We loved the Manet exhibit and the Photography Area. I wish we had a bit more time to spend exploring.
