Specialty Museum Museum
Explore the impressive collection of pre-20th-century European art that fills the rooms of Getty Center The Publications. Nestled in the hills overlooking Los Angeles, the six-building complex, notable for its new-age architecture and expanse of landscaped gardens, features exhibits of 19th- and 20th-century photographs, sculptures, and paintings. 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 The Publications and other attractions in Los Angeles.
