10) The J. Paul Getty Museum

The J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles is often referred to as The Getty. It has two locations. The Getty Center is in Brentwood and the Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades. The Getty Center in Los Angeles houses European paintings, drawings, sculpture, illuminated manuscripts, decorative arts, and photography; a garden, and 28 outdoor sculpture installations. The building is a modern design with a panoramic view of the city. The builders imported 16,000 tons of travertine from Italy containing fossilized flora. The Villa houses ancient art from the Stone Age to the fall of the Roman Empire including 44,000 Greek, Roman and Etruscan antiquities. The building is modeled after a first-century Roman country house. Tickets are free, but should be reserved in advance. Parking is not free, but one fee covers both locations.
