Full description

Explore one of Los Angeles' top sights with an art historian on a guided tour. Visit the Getty Center Museum and see works by Rembrandt, Titian, Da Vinci, and Cezanne.

Meet your guide outside the Getty Museum and prepare to journey through time. Before you start your tour, let your guide know if you want to focus on a specific art period or want to see the highlights.

Stroll through the impressive art collection, from illuminated manuscripts, paintings, drawings, and sculptures, to decorative arts. See paintings from Middle Ages to the early twentieth century.

Meander through the museum's six buildings with your guide and enjoy magnificent gardens and a panoramic view of Los Angeles. At each section, stop and hear a "peek behind the canvas" from your guide. Learn how each artist impacted history and discover little-known facts about them.

As you pass through the Renaissance paintings, learn why so many nudes are featured and how French kings influenced fashion and furniture. Visit the Dutch Masters and learn why they painted so many dead bugs, wilted flowers, and skulls.

After you see the highlights of the permanent collection, head to the Decorative Arts Pavilion. Marvel at historical items belonging to the French Kings and Marie Antoinette before finishing your tour.

It was a wonderful tour. Our guide was on time and extremely knowledgeable about the Getty and fine art. She was very patient and answered all of our questions…..would do this again with her if the opportunity comes again.
