Often clubbed with a visit to the Getty Centre, the Getty Villa has a more laidback vibe to it. As if an instant trip to Greece or Rome this villa is abundant with studies of art forms like sculptures and paintings dedicated to ancient Greece, Etruria and Rome. With a collection exceeding a whopping 44,000 items, some dating back to the period of 6,500 BC to 400 AD, you can easily spend a good amount of time here on a sunny day. Here you will even find the iconic sculptures of Victorious Youth and Lansdowne Heracles. The museum is a result of the founder, J. Paul Getty running out of space to accommodate his collection in his house. So, he thought of opening the Getty Villa adjoining his house.

  • Parking is $15. Reservations are to be made online, printing out the FREE tickets. It is recommended to buy parking, as it is located in a spot where you can't really park near the Getty Villa Museum. Also, the parking will help support this beautiful museum. The museum has incredible art in the forms of rings, gemstones, jewelry, statues, and of course architecture! There is also food a available to buy; there are tables as well. Besides that, there are many benches and places to rest throughout the Getty Villa.

  • An incredible display of Roman and Mediterranean art. With the Pacific bordering one side and the mountains on the others, there couldn't be a more perfect setting. Architecturally, the villa is a spectacle - its amazing to think that this was an actual residence. The real treasure, though, is what is contained inside. The grounds are fun to explore. As well, the restaurant provides seating with great views, complete with decent wines and good food. Kids tend to really like the place as well.

  • STILL STUNNING! GREAT PLACE TO TAKE YOUR CULTURE-LOVING LA VISITORS! The Getty Villa is a pristine step back 19 centuries. Gardens and antiquities to die for. Well worth the 15$ parking fee.

  • The Getty Villa in Malibu is to me an architectural masterpiece. The buildings and the grounds are extremely well designed and landscaped. While walking through the gardens or the collection of Greek and Roman antiquities you feel like you are on an Italian island in the middle of the Mediterranean. The sculptures and artifacts are really well displayed with excellent descriptions of their history.

  • One the most gorgeous museums I've ever stepped in! True homage was payed to the ancient style of architecture in the villa itself, as well as remarkably colorful and florid cofferring, fluted columns, and rooms full of outstanding art pieces from Greece, Rome, Cyclades and such. It's a the past ♥️
