Getty Museum is one of the cultural highlights of LA. You pay $15 for parking (no additional fee) and you can enjoy a world class museum with all its benefits. Paintings, sculpture, pictures, etc. from the best of the bests. Guided tours are available or you can just go around discovering the place for yourself (don't forget to pick up an audio guide in the lobby). Plus the gardens and the beautiful view....
Best. Museum. Ever. Every time someone from out-of-town comes to visit, we take them here for an afternoon. We've been back about a half dozen times and the Getty never fails to impress. With sprawling grounds, historical rooms, art beyond your wildest imagination, gardens, a tram ride, tons of benches and water fountains, and even complimentary umbrellas if it starts to rain, you tend to forget that there's also an incredible view of Los Angeles. They offer free audio tours and the staff there is the absolute best! They love their jobs and it shows!
