The Getty

...from ancient Greece, Rome and Etruria

The J. Paul Getty Museum, commonly referred to as the Getty, is an art museum in California housed on two campuses: the Getty Center and Getty Villa.

The Getty Center is in the Brentwood neighborhood and is the primary location of the Museum. Designed by Richard Meier and opened in 1997, holds J. Paul Getty Museum’s enormous collection of pre- 20th- century European art as well as photography from all over the world. A commanding hilltop citadel of glass and off- white travertine, the architecture is a true piece of art itself and rates one of the world’s premiere art complexes. 

The Museum's second location, the Getty Villa, is in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood. The villa is a stunning re-creation of Classical architecture. It is modeled after a majestic 2nd century villa near Pompeii. Set at the edge of the Pacific amid manicured gardens,and is now the home of the Getty Museum’s remarkable collection of art from "ancient Greece, Rome and Etruria.
