Student Architecture and Garden Tours at the Getty Center

Just like the paintings on the gallery walls, the buildings, fountains, and garden at the Getty Center are important works of art designed by creative minds. During your self-guided visit, step out of the galleries for a docent-led multi-sensory tour of our architecture and gardens. It's never the same tour twice!
