Spectacular complex, fascinating architecture, excellent displays, wonderful experience overall. This place is really a can't miss experience if you're around the LA basin. From the cool tram that takes you from the parking lot up the hill to the center, to the stunning views (not too smoggy when we were there) of LA, everything is awesome about this place. The displays are way too many to cover in one day, so pick and choose what intrigues you most. I was impressed by the monumental architecture, and the interior of the various wings. We experienced the Egypt special exhibit which was brilliantly laid out with an excellent selection of artifacts. We had lunch at the main cafeteria - the food was much better than I expected! The gardens and landscaping are also highlights. We will be coming back to the Getty again next time we're in the LA area.
