The Getty Villa, the original site of the J. Paul Getty Museum, is a museum dedicated to the study of the arts and cultures of ancient Greece, Rome, and Etruria. The design is based on the Villa dei Papiri, a 1st century Roman estate in Herculaneum, Italy, which was partially excavated in the 18th century.  It is the only museum in the U.S. dedicated exclusively to ancient art. It underwent a major renovation project and reopened in 2006.

Visit the TimeScape Room, containing interactive exhibits that focus on time, place, and artistic style in the ancient Mediterranean, and the Family Forum for some hands-on activities.

Performances and films are available (student rate tickets), as well as free lectures (tickets required).
