DISCOUNTED PARKING STARTS EARLIER AT THE GETTY
$10 parking begins at 3:00 pm, leaving more time to enjoy the Museum
LOS ANGELES – The Getty is offering reduced parking fees earlier in the afternoon so evening visitors have more time to enjoy the galleries. Visitors who enter the Getty Villa and Getty Center after 3pm will pay $10 to park, instead of the regular $15. Previously, discounted rates began at 4:00 p.m.
By offering the discounted rate an hour earlier, the Getty hopes to encourage more visitors to come later in the day to enjoy the sunset and avoid the crowds. Extended weekend hours are in effect at both sites this summer.
The Getty’s popular “Pay Once, Park Twice” program will still be in effect, offering same-day parking at both the Getty Center and the Getty Villa for one parking fee. Visit the Museum Information Desk at the Center or the Villa to obtain a coupon good for same-day complimentary parking at the other site.
The J. Paul Getty Trust is an international cultural and philanthropic institution devoted to the visual arts that includes the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Getty Research Institute, the Getty Conservation Institute, and the Getty Foundation. The J.
