Frequently Asked Questions

What can I see at the Villa beginning January 3?

At any given time, approximately half of the Villa’s galleries will be open. The Inner Peristyle, East Garden, Herb Garden, and parts of the Outer Peristyle will also be open.

Public programming, such as lectures and theater performances, is offered as usual during this time. Gallery, garden, and architecture tours are also available.

See the event calendar for information on all programs and tours available during your visit.

What can I do with children at the Villa?

The Family Forum will be closed from late April 2017 to late September 2017. Extra family programs will be offered during this time, and gallery, garden, and architecture tours will occur throughout the day as usual. See the event calendar for more information.

The Family Forum will reopen in late September 2017 in an expanded space.

Can I still schedule a school visit?

Yes. Educators can still reserve visits for school groups.

Why is the collection being reinstalled?

The Getty Villa’s antiquities collection is being reinstalled to emphasize the chronology and culture of the artwork. This will provide a more complete picture of the art history of the ancient Mediterranean.

The new display will trace the chronology of the development of art in the Etruscan, Greek, and Roman cultures from the Bronze Age through the Late Roman Empire (ca. 3,000 B.C.–A.D. 600).

Do I still need to reserve a ticket?

Yes. You must reserve an advance, timed-entry tickets before your visit.
