We’ve visited The Getty a few times as a family and we have always had a good time. If you have wanted to visit and are unsure if the little ones would have a great time, rest assured that they will! There are so many fun places to explore and gardens to walk. However, nothing beats The Getty Center’s Family Room.
The Family Room allows you to learn and play with your kiddos in a relaxed environment. There are five different areas for them to explore. The kiddos will be able to make their own mask masterpiece, or play around in a 18th century luxury bed with it’s own mini library or go on an art hunt. The art hunt is a fantastic way to prepare the kiddos for discovering the rest of the museum. There are 70 peepholes on the treasure-hunt walls to see interesting details from works of art in the Getty Museum’s collection. It’s fun to be able to walk through the galleries after and finding the art work from the peepholes. Your kiddos will love it!
Admission to the museum is always free. Parking is $15 but is free on Saturday evenings from 5pm to closing. Bring a blanket and a picnic lunch and spend a wonderful day with the family. The Getty offers an array of programs and special events for the family. To learn more about upcoming events and additional info head here.
