Thursday Travel: The Getty Museum (Part 2)

As I mentioned in part 1, one of the uniqueness of the architecture of the Getty Museum is sight lines between interior and exterior spaces allowing visitors to move in and out of the 5 gallery pavilions. In this part 2, you’ll see how visitors can enjoy the landscape while walking between and around the pavilions.

Trees, bushes, and grass are well planted there, they are nicely blended with the stone buildings.

These green paths lead visitors to the nextΒ building and further. You can take time to appreciate the landscape before entering the next exhibit.

The fountain here is not serving just for decoration purpose, it creates a beautiful area for visitors to relax:

The outdoor eating area is a little away from the gallery, here visitors can take a lunch break and enjoy the view of Los Angeles:

Two other places visitors can walk up to for a grand view of LA:

Part I is about the architecture of theΒ gallery pavilions

Happy Thursday!

  1. It is a very large complex, and beautifully laid out; looks wonderful. I like all the relaxing outdoor spots too. Your photos here are great Amy, you captured the brilliant lines.


  2. thank you for featuring the Getty Museum Amy. my family and i very much enjoyed our visit there several years ago. it is truly a beautiful complex thoughtfully built not only to showcase art but for visitors to enjoy and relax. you captured the awesome architecture. thanks again for sharing.


  3. Such memories. When we were there I seemed to focus more on the artwork itself, though I did take a few shots of the entrance. I’m glad you chose to shoot the exterior architecture. It is artwork in its own right. Beautiful interconnected buildings.


Thank you for visiting! Love to hear from you...
