A unique destination, the Getty Center incorporates the modern design of architect Richard Meier, with beautiful gardens, open spaces, and spectacular views of Los Angeles.

The Central Garden at the Getty Center is an evolving work of art, with tree-lined walkways that lead visitors through extraordinary sights, sounds, and scents.
