The Getty Center

Perched atop a hill that overlooks many of LA's districts, seeing The Getty Center from the outside—and the view it offers—is already quite the experience itself! Unfortunately, however, the virtual tour offered online doesn't exactly feel the same way as actually being there yourself. Though seeing the many antiques and artworks inside feel very much the same! In fact, you might even get to see all of the museum's displays a lot clearer and in greater detail than when you see them in person. But the best part? Admission here is free, both online and in-person! That's good news for those who constantly have to deal with the living costs in LA.
