My trip to Getty Museum in LA


The Getty Museum in Los Angeles is really nice and they have some nice gardens too. They aren't large but I will say they are well done. I went last weekend. You can view the rest of the photos in my album on my profile.

What a very interesting, modern take on landscape design. I can't see the buildings too well in the pictures that you posted on the thread... but it looks like it matches well the building design.

Thanks for sharing!

Interesting, wish I knew the names of the plants, but the water scene is impressive.

The landscape and architecture are really modern. That is one of the attractions to the place. It just opened in 1997 so it is still relatively new.

I can kick myself as I passed up the opportunity to visit Getty Museum while I was in LA last year.

Very different Landscape design. I would call it ART. It is definitely on my list if I am EVER in LA.
