How can I enjoy the Getty museum? Getty Museum Tips
Start your visit with the orientation film. Check the daily schedule for tour times to plan your day. If you plan to spend time inside the galleries, rent a GettyGuide audio tour. It’s like having your own personal entourage of art experts along to explain things.
Is the Getty worth visiting? The Getty Center isn’t just a museum with an exceptional art and artifact collection, it’s one of the best public parks in Southern California, with beautiful views of the Santa Monica and Los Angeles skylines, as well as the surrounding mountains.
How much time should I spend at the Getty Center? If visiting just for the art, I’d say 2 hours. If you’re staying for the view, food and architecture you can easily spend 3-4 hours. The gardens are lovely.
