Getty Museum


1200 Getty Center Dr,
Los Angeles, CA 90049

I saw All the Money in the World last year and Getty Center becomes a must on my list – which is a good place to visit in LA.

The art collections, architecture and the landscaping are nicely designed and done. The museum is free, parking $15.

Getty restaurant


1200 Getty Center Dr,
Los Angeles, CA 90049

Pleasant, straightforward, bit pricy. Food and service are above average. I’m expecting a killer view but disappointed by the balcony wall – see through fiber glass (?) might serve better? They’ve out door seating but isn’t open. Oh well.

We’ve carrot cumin hummus, paella, chicken and scallops – the seafood cooked just right, juicy and tender. Fake cactus on the table. Why bother?

Parking at the museum is $15.
