Getty Center 3-D Map

To enable visitors to get their barings and directions to various galleries on the grounds, The Getty Center created a 3-D scale model map. I was drawn to the nice cast steel replica during a visit to the complex of art galleries and museums which sit atop a Brentwood hill over-looking Los Angeles. The Center is the current home of the J. Paul Getty Museum as well as a research institute, grant program, and leadership institute. Opened in 1997 and designed by architect Richard Meier, The museum is free to the public, however, there is a parking fee. See more 3-D maps.

Hi Dave,
Would it be OK with you if we use your photo and link to your site from the Getty's blog (which is at gettylens.wordpress.com)?

If so, what credit line should we use?

Many thanks. Great post!

Hi Vicki,

Yes you can link to my blog from Getty's blog - that would be great. I took this photo a few years ago while at your museum, so you can credit the photo to: BuildingCollector.com

Can you send me a link when you post to your blog?

Thanks, Dave
