Over the weekend we decided to take a break from theme parks (not really much going on and this is really our "off season") and decided to take in some culture at The Getty.
This was our first visit to the main Getty since 2008 so we were excited to head back. One of our first ever updates on Park Journey was actually to the Getty Villa back in December 2013, be sure to check out Part 1 and Part 2 of those updates to see the other wing.

Bust of J. Paul Getty
We started off with the European art (click on any of the pictures to see a larger version)
In addition to the amazing art at the Getty, it boasts some of the best views in all of Southern California
Love the natural light that comes in to light some of the galleries
Moving on to the home furnishings portion of the update and of course some amazing tapestries.
More of the amazing views. Once you exit one of the wings of the museum you are pretty much greeted with some amazing views, it's a nice break in between exhibits.
Scrunchy Face ...
Some of my favorite artists
Lastly, the Getty rock garden. There were also more fountains on our previous visit but they have been turned off due to the CA drought.
We hope you enjoyed this look at The Getty, for more information on the foundation and the museum locations be sure to visit their website. Admission to both museums is free but do require a $15 parking fee. The Getty Villa does also require reservations due to it's smaller size.
