Getty Museum Grounds

The Getty Museum in the Los Angeles area is a famous museum with an extensive collection of artwork spanning centuries. Here are some photos of the museum's grounds from our visit last summer. First up is the main entrance.
Here's some cacti - it's famous for its cactus garden.
And here's a courtyard where you can enjoy a drink.
Over the next couple of weeks I'll post some photos from inside the museum. It's well worth a visit, and it's my Our World Tuesday entry for this week.

  5. It is so intriguing to see an actual cacti garden. From a faraway perspective of the ones you have pictured they look a bit like a sea of little green olives. :)

  14. I've been there a few times. The building and grounds are as amazing as what is on display.
    The icing on the cake is that it's free.
