Teachers are welcome to bring their K–12 classes to the Getty Villa. All school groups must make reservations using the Getty Villa School Visit Request Form. See Planning a School Visit for more information.
Two options are offered for K–12 teachers who wish to bring classes to the Villa: Self-Guided Visits led by classroom teachers and chaperones, and Guided Visits facilitated by gallery docents.
Themed galleries and interactive spaces, such as the TimeScape Room at the Villa, help students and chaperones develop a better understanding of the arts and cultures of the ancient world. An outdoor picnic area and storage cabinets are also available to schools visiting through the school visit program.
For more information about school programs at the Villa, please contact the Education Department at (310) 440-6550.
The Villa Summer Institute and Workshops for K-12 teachers helps to prepare educators for more in-depth work with the Museum's antiquities collection. For more information about upcoming Villa Summer Institute programming, see Professional Development in the Education section of this website.
