Getty Center & Getty Villa Museum

The Getty Center showcases medieval to modern art with a birds-eye view of Los Angeles. The tram ride, gardens and outdoor spaces, and art galleries are fun for families to enjoy together. Outdoors, stroll the gardens and discover hundreds of colorful and unusual plants. Visit the Family Room, where guests can decorate a giant illuminated manuscript with their own designs, build a tube sculpture, take place in a parade scene in a painting, or play with camera lenses and a wall of mirrors.

The Getty Villa Museum displays Greek and Roman antiquities in a recreated Roman country house. Visit the Family Forum, where guests can draw, transform themselves into athletes, musicians, and mythological creatures in the shadow-pose area, and decorate life-sized replicas of ancient vases.

Admission to the Getty campuses is free for the whole family, but a timed-entry reservation is required. Each person over the age of two needs a reservation; reservation bookings allow up to six people in a party.
