TRAVEL / That LA View: The Getty Museum

Cactus The Getty Museum

There are some pretty amazing vantage points in Los Angeles, especially if you love a good hike. Griffith Park, Runyon Canyon and Malibu Mountains will all have you actively atop the city, however if you are looking for an experience that allows you to leave your joggers at home, then the tram to The Getty Museum is your answer.

The Getty Museum 41Located atop West LA, the Museum is more than just a Museum. Richard Meier’s architecture sprawls over the 110 acre hillside and allows visitors to wander through, finding not only visual brilliance in it’s constructed shape and aesthetic, but also in it’s expansive gardens, outdoor sculptures, artwork and of course city views.

Moving indoors, the estate counts Van Gogh’s Irises painting as a regular resident aswell as showcasing various exhibitions year round, including it’s own standing collection of pre-20th century European paintings, sculpture and manuscripts.

Whilst the cultural side of The Getty is an impressive destination in itself, the location is also perfect for if you are just after a simple afternoon in the sun. With three dining locations and various picnic options, you could spend the day partaking in favourite past-times: perched with a glass of wine, good company and a view.
