What an impressive Museum. Modern design, Getty's best. Take a look in the Nude Exhibition. Don't miss the Photo Exhibition. And all the rest. Be prepared for half a day spent. Entrance is free. Parking available. Enjoy.

The Getty Center is fantastic! Absolutely worth a visit. The Getty Villa in Malibu, California is also worth a visit, since the Getty Villa was the original Getty Museum back in the day, before the Getty Center was constructed.

It is worth visiting for a whole day to appreciate its collections of art and to explore the gardens which are picture perfect.

IMO the architecture and gardens of the Getty Center are the true gems. Plus the fun ride in the train that takes you up the hill. The Art quality is good, but no where near the level of the Metropolitan in NY, or even LACMA....More

Ok place for tourists but staff is kind of rude and arrogant. I've got a flat tire inside the parking lot and they refused to help demanding to move the car at any cost knowing I could not move. Weirdos.

Visiting the Getty is always a beautiful experience. The site it a work of art in itself. The views phenomenal. Weekend evenings are particularly my favorite time to visit and have a picnic. All this and amazing art ! The Getty is truly an LA...More

The Getty Center is a destination that is separate from mundane everyday city life. The collections are easily comparable to the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art. You truly have to visit this amazing place...inside and out!

Stunning views and wonderful collections. We stopped for lunch in the cafe and had delicious food (everyone got something different: burritos, pho, and salad).

There is no "fine" dining. Just a table cloth restaurant, you'll find people wearing shorts. I wouldn't worry about shoes.
