Here’s my advice to anyone visiting Los Angeles, California, for pleasure. If you have to choose between a tour of the stars’ homes or The Getty Museum, pick The Getty. That place is just fabulous.
My friend, Georgia, took me and my friend Misty to the Getty a few years back when we were in Long Beach for a conference so I knew I wanted to revisit. Now I am pretty sure that given the opportunity, I would move in and live there. It is spectacular.
Greg and I intended to go for a couple of hours to one see one exhibit (“Pacific Standard Time at The Getty” – two thumbs up!!) and then on to lunch. Well, lunch ended up being at 4:00 p.m. (at the famous Pink’sHot Dogs in Hollywood – but that’s another story.) I could have easily stayed longer at the museum and forgotten about lunch.
Anyhow, as usual, one is not allowed to take photos in the exhibits, but the sky’s the limit outside. I feel that even if one does not enter a museum building, there is plenty of art to see on the outside. Here’s my take on The Getty. Please don’t miss it if you are ever in LA.
