Getty Villa – 20 NOV 2008

We took a couple of friends and went to see the newly renovated Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades. The original entrance was through this Outer Peristyle.

The Malibu location was the original museum for the Getty collection which was moved to the Getty Center in Brentwood in 1997.
The Getty Villa is a re-creation of the Villa of the Papyri at Herculaneum. This is the new entrance.
Although it is the home to an extensive collection of Greek, Roman and Etruscan antiquities, we spent most of your time taking guided tours of the grounds.
