The Getty

Posted by Janet on June 3, 2009

My first weekend vacationing in California, I went to The Getty Center with some friends. The Getty Center is an art museum in Los Angeles with an exquisite collection in Western Art. We only stayed a few hours, but I especially enjoyed the works on modern photography. Located on top of a mountain, its architecture and view is like no other. Absolutely breathtaking. Parking is $10 but admission is free. From the parking garage, you have the option to take a tram or a 15 minute hike up to the museum.

If this is somewhere you would like to visit, plan at least a full day visit. Parking can be slow depending time of day or week.
