The Getty Villa

The Malibu real estate community is abundant with recreation opportunities for visitors and residents alike. The Getty Villa is an educational center and museum that is a great destination for adults and children alike.

Located at 17985 Pacific Coast Highway, The Getty Villa was founded with the mission to study and spread awareness of the arts and culture of ancient Greece, Rome, and Etruri. Visitors to the Villa enjoy viewing Roman-inspired architecture, gardens and antiquities. The Getty Villa offers guided tours of the garden and architecture several times throughout the day.

The Getty Villa features specialized exhibitions year round. There are six galleries on Floor 2 of the museum devoted to changing exhibitions on themes related to the arts and cultures of antiquity. Currently, they are featuring Aphrodite and the Gods of Love, Glassmaking in Antiquity, The Sanctuaries of Demeter and Persephone at Morgantina, and Roman Ephebe from Naples. The Getty Villa also offers family-focused activities such as ArtQuest! and Art Odyssey. Admission to the museum is always free; an advance, time-entry ticket is required.
