Tips from locals
An exquisite example of an ancient Roman villa, the building and the grounds are gorgeous with views out over the Pacific Ocean. It is filled with numerous ancient Greek and Roman pieces, as well as artwork from other eras. Seeing a Roman villa with the full-color frescos and stonework is a treat…
As an ancient art historian and archaeologist, I cannot stress how amazing this museum is! Built directly from ancient papyrus architectural plans, this museum is small and intimate and boasts not only amazing art, but a fantastic view of the ocean.
The Getty Villa is one of two locations of the J. Paul Getty Museum. Located at the easterly end of the Malibu coast in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood of Los Angeles, California
Beautiful old art in a renovated space...you need a reservation, it's free though!
The Getty Villa is a short drive, just south of our Malibu Beach House. Admission is free, although you pay for your parking reservation.
