Free! Just pay for parking. Majestic hilltop buildings, the art is Ok, the traveling collections can be great, but the real attraction is the space and gardens themselves. Must not miss!

This is a great museum for people who don’t love to go to museums. You can enjoy an afternoon (and sometimes an evening) on this gorgeous hillside, take in the views on the tramway from the parking lot, stroll in the amazing garden, sit on the grass, enjoy a great meal - and never even step foot in…

When the museum opened the wait time for tickets was in weeks. Plan ahead if you want to visit and get your reservations

The Getty is a gorgeous museum located on amazing grounds with breathtaking views of the beach and downtown. Worth a day’s visit. It’s free but parking is $15. Arrive early to avoid tram waits.

Great Museum. The tram ride up and the architecture alone are worth the visit. There's also a lovely outdoor garden. Check covid hours/operation

Enjoy a morning at the Getty art museum. Parking is $20, but admission is free. Give yourself 2-3 hours to stroll around, admiring the incredible architecture and garden. Oh and the art is good too! Need a frame worthy pic? Take a panoramic shot of LA from the Getty
