about Getty Villa
The Getty Villa is a museum of Ancient Greek, Roman and Etruscan artefacts and works of art.
Located in Pacific Palisades, California, it displays a collection of antiquities from each of these periods in a thematic exploration of ancient life, culture, religion and even war.
The Getty Villa is itself a reconstruction of a typical ancient villa as well as including a reconstructed theatre.
Just as empires rise and fall so do entry fees and opening hours! While we work as hard as we can to ensure the information provided here about Getty Villa is as accurate as possible, the changing nature of certain elements mean we can't absolutely guarantee that these details won't become a thing of the past.
