This is possible the best overall museum experience in the world. When you compare the quality of the architectural use of space, paintings, sculptures, and ceramics collections it’s impressive. Toss in the gardens and views makes this a world class experience over the top.

I have to say that I do not know the answer to this question. While I think that it would be unlikely, I would recommend that you contact the Getty Center directly. The customer focus is strong so they may have a solution... More
