Visiting the Getty Villa & Getty Center in One Day


The Getty and Getty Villa are two of the best places to visit on a trip to Los Angeles. These museums are full of amazing art and sculptures, while the museum structures themselves and the gardens are works of art as well. I always enjoy visiting the museums when I have the chance and I recommend you check them both out as well. This video just provides a short introduction based on a recent video but it barely scratches the surface of what there is to see at the two museums. Let me know what you think in the comments.

    Thank you Josh, another great video as usual, in my opinion Getty center is the best museum I have ever been to, maybe because I go there so much : )

  3. Violet BF

    Of course L.A. traffic is awesome!!! ?
    I used to take my son to the Getty Center when he was little, and we used to love spending time there. It’s time to go back, it’s more beautiful than I remember!
    Thanks for another great video Josh, and for all the good tips you share ????

    Haven”t to the hilltop museum in awhile, its easy getting there but a hassle driving back to Hollywood via streets. I always visit the photo gallery which is at the end of the fountain when looking out the main entry building. And it is possible to make arrangements to view the photo study area too. Used to take groups of photo students.

    This was very well captured. I was there a few months ago and I have to say it’s about as beautiful as you made it look.

    For me, having traveled to Pompeii in Italy, the garden and architectural tours are the most important fascinating part of the villa. It explains why it was built the way it was and what the significance of the replica sculptures in the garden. In Naples I saw the originals they were copied after. Seeing them at the Getty snd not in a museum is so much more impactful. I love Getty center, probably the best museum of art ever. The fact that both are free is astonishing. Thanks for posting

    Hey Josh, super cool video. I actually work at the museum! Wish I knew you were gonna swing by so I could have given you a tour and showed you some cool stuff!

    Love the style and architecture of The Villa, but wow, we had no idea how extensive and incredible the Getty was – I always just pictured a building with paintings (spent time in European museums)…. The added gardens and nice architecture really make it a destination!
