      The premiere art museum in Los Angeles, and indeed one of the finest in the world, the Getty exhibits an impressive collection of Rembrandt, Renoir, Van Gogh and other masters of pre-Twentieth Century art. The Center also features lectures, demonstrations, and presentations of theatre, film, and music. Its spectacular hilltop location, and its splendid architecture and grounds also add to the experience of a day at the museum. A second location, the Getty Villa, which was designed in the style of an Italian Villa in nearby Pacific Palisades, was actually the museum's original location, built at the home of J. Paul Getty.

      If you go:
      The Getty Center is closed on Mondays, and the Getty Villa is closed on Tuesdays. Amazingly, admission to both facilities is free. But parking at each location is 15 dollars. There is no parking for oversized vehicles.
