Great day trip! – What a great day trip to head to the Getty! Enjoy the art and watch the sunset on the hill while having wine and a little meal. You can walk up the way or take the train. There will be plenty of people there and lots to do, but take it all in and have fun!

Stunning Views, Exciting Exhibits, Amazing Architecture – I am no art afficiando, but I really enjoyed myself at the Getty. The architecture is just increible to look at, and the garden is a beautifu L.A. escape amidst the stunning views and enriching art exhibits. There is so much to look at and explore here- it will keep you busy for a least a couple of hours. I particutarly liked the range of art from paintings to scultpures, to ancient cups, bowls, plates, etc.- this truly is a Los Angeles treasure.

Stunning architecture, intriguing exhibits, and its free!? – The Getty Center is a must visit for locals and tourists alike. Its an experience in itself from taking the tram up the hill to the breathtaking views from the modern landscape of the Getty's patios, lawns and multiple buildings. I've been there a handful of time and each I am excited to find a new featured exhibit in addition to many classics in their collection of art. It's a great place to go on a date because you can just pack a picnic and head to the grassy lawn that overlooks the city. The best part is the whole experience is free other then a small parking charge. If you've never been go and if it's been awhile go back! Who said LA was devoid of culture?!)

Architecturally stunning! – The art collection at the Getty Center is definitely impressive, but it's not what I like most about visiting there. For me, it's all about the architecture and how the Southland is viewed from and sometimes (literally) through the buildings. You can walk from one building to another and stumble across little (and sometimes not so little) "peepholes" that act as windows or frames for images of the city below or beyond. On a clear day, you can see great views of both the city and the ocean. If you're here in the middle of the day and get hungry, you have different options. There are snack carts, the casual "cafeteria-style" eatery and a gourmet restaurant. My one tip is to bring a sweater or a light-weight jacket. Despite the fact you're in the middle of Southern California...where the weather is usually beautiful...you are on top of a knoll and it does get windy. Make the Getty Center part of your day on the Westside...and then head to the beach for a great sunset dinner.

Fabulous Architecture, Beautiful View, Interesting Art – This is a must-see for any visit to the LA area. It is beautifully situated on a hilltop on the Westside, with a panoramic view of the city, the Valley, and the Pacific Ocean. The architecture is modernistic and lovely. The grounds are beautifully landscaped. The museum is spread out, with buildings for different periods of art. It doesn't have the most comprehensive collection, but there are notable pieces here. The changing exhibitions and shows are usually worth seeing. The grounds alone make it a place worth spending a day.

Wonderful Attraction For Dates, Friends or With Family – I love the Getty! The photo exhibits, which frequently change are most interesting to me. Some of the furniture is really neat too. The outdoor garden area with a big fountain and benches are the best! It's so beautiful in the summer! And the cafe is really nice as well. The views overlooking the city are really great and you feel far away from the buzz of city life!

Every art lover's best resource for books, reproduction posters and CDs and videos on various genres. – In Short
The Getty has an exhaustive library of titles in a multitude of genres, from Greek and Roman history, art and architecture to humanities and the history of Los Angeles. Books on current exhibits are in abundance, and there's a stellar Promotional Titles section--art, history and coffee table books that have been reduced in price yet are in excellent condition. Florentine painted picture frames, feather calligraphy sets, framed art prints and reproduction jewelry are other delights to be had.

Beautiful views in every direction – I think I could go here every day and not get bored. Besides all the great art collections and galleries, the Getty is an architectural marvel. Everything gleams in the sun as if in some futuristic world and the view of Southern California is breathtaking. Go, if for not for anything else, because you have nothing to lose. Admission is free and parking is cheap.
