Breathtaking views over Los Angeles and across to the San Gabriel Mountains interact with the architecture, extensive gardens and sculpted artworks to create an element of perfection.

The Getty Center welcomes1.3 million visitors each year, none of whom leave disappointed. The Museum boasts works from some of the worlds most renowned artists including Van Gogh and Gaugin.
