The Getty Center

Since opening in 1997, the Getty Center has quickly become one of Los Angeles' most important cultural hubs. It is the most frequently visited of the museum galleries that display collector J. Paul Getty's enormous art collection. Known for its antiquities, the expanded gallery also displays numerous Impressionist paintings, French furniture and decorative arts, historical manuscripts, contemporary photography, and stunning graphic arts.

The public can visit the five two-story pavilions which are set around an open courtyard. Each gallery is specially designed to complement the works it displays. A sophisticated lighting system of allows many of the works to be displayed in the natural light they were created in, for a unique and unparalleled viewing experience.
