Explore the impressive collection of pre-20th-century European art that fills the rooms of Getty Center Publications.

Take your time wandering through the museum’s sculpture garden, or have your picture taken with Van Gogh’s "Irises." Pack a picnic to have in the gardens while taking in a panoramic view of the city. While admission to the center is free, you must pay to park a car. Use our Los Angeles itinerary maker to arrange your visit to Getty Center Publications and other attractions in Los Angeles.
