    Very nice architecture. I also really liked the Ansel Adams and Hiroshi Sugimoto photos and the Hatched exhibition.

    Must see when you are visiting LA, or have visitor to LA. Beautiful architecture, very specific to the region. You can spend days exploring the exhibits.

    Set atop the low-lying hills of West L.A., the Getty is one of the most stunning spots in the city. On clear days (after high winds or heavy rain has dissipated the city's trademark smog blanket) visitors can see all the way to Catalina Island. Though the Getty houses a more than formidable collection, I tend to spend most of my time gaping at the elegant architecture (made from local limestone) or wandering the perfectly kept grounds. However, I always make sure to take a gander at the new, often unusual exhibits in town.

    Free admission. Pay for parking. Beautiful views of the Santa Monica area. Beautiful gardens and galleries.

    Gorgeous views. Free. Nice art collection, but the setting and gardens are most important. Ride the tram from the parking lot up to the Museum.

    One of my top 4 places in Los Angeles. Great views, beautiful architecture and art, and the Getty Center is also terrific.

    With gorgeous views overlooking the beach and Los Angeles, the Getty Museum is a great spot for a weekend out. It has excellent architecture, a full restaurant with an extensive wine list, and guided tours if you choose. Also, there are many semi-private nooks and crannies to relax in.

    An interesting museum with a scenic view of L.A., the Getty Museum has exhibits, paintings, and photography in separate buildings. It's a recommended site whilst visiting L.A.

    The Getty is a great museum with a fabulous permanent collection. The trip up to the museum is a little spooky and the fortress-like structure is too full of light to be a perfect space for looking at art, but this is still a spot not to miss.

    This is my all-time favorite place in Los Angeles. A place to see great art (usually very solid exhibits) and great views of LA. It's relaxing and beautiful to just chill out here when you need that me time. Appeals to tourists and locals alike. And the best part, it's free!

    The gardens of The Getty Museum are gorgeous. I love that you can see all of Los Angeles on a clear day from the museum, and that it's very much a roam-at-your-own-pace kind of place...plus, free music on certain weekends = so much win!

    Great museum with even better views and grounds to stroll around for hours at. On a clear day you can see all the way downtown and to the ocean. Park and take the tram to the grounds, great deal and a must see!
