For a day of culture, history and art with kids, visit the The Getty Museum in Los Angeles. This massive educational hub is absolutely free! How amazing is that?
After parking your car, a train will be available every few minutes to bring passengers to the main Getty Center. TIP: Arrive as early as 10AM (when the museum opens) to find parking and avoid crowds.
There are also Family Art Stops where you can get up close and personal with a single work of art for ages 5 and up. The sign up for this begins 15 minutes before the program (11:00am, 1:00pm and 2:00pm). Since we were with a baby, we didn’t bother anymore with this. But for parents of older kids, this might be a very good option!
Our first stop was the Kid Zone where my kids busied themselves for a good 30 minutes with all the age appropriate activities available.
By lunchtime, we were famished! There are several places you can choose to eat and we picked the most picturesque place of course!
TIP: Your kids will most likely get hungry often so do bring some snacks and water with you which you can lug in your stroller.
