    J. Paul Getty MuseumJ. Paul Getty Museum Los Angeles, California
    this fabulous museum has two locations in Los Angeles, California, with the one at the Getty Center housing western art from the Middle Ages to the current day and the Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles houses works from ancient Etruria, Greece and Rome. The museum welcomes over 1.3 million visitors each year and continues to grow through the J. Paul Getty Trust and other donations. Getty would open his second museum at a copy of the Villa of the Papyri at Herculaneum, on his property in Pacific Palisades, and in 1982, it would become the wealthiest museum in the world as it inherited $1.2 billion and renamed it Getty Villa. The beautiful collection contains works of sculpture, architecture and room elements, photographs, decorative objects and vases, paintings, drawings, manuscripts, furniture and implements and costumes. It is a spectacular collection, one that is so expansive that it must be showcased in two museums, offering visitors an opportunity to view some of the finest works in the world in almost any category or time. There are a large number of new acquisitions that have just been installed, and the current exhibitions and installations is jam packed as well. A few of the current displays that run through to the spring and summer include; Stories to Watch: Narrative in Medieval Manuscripts; Photography from New China; Gods of Angkor: Bronzes from the National Museum of Cambodia; La Roldana's Saint Gines: The Making of a Polychrome Sculpture and Obsidian Mirror-Travels: Refracting Ancient Mexican Art and Archaeology.

    The George C. Page Museum, that is now part of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, had been built next to the tar pits to depict the story of the pits as well as presenting outstanding and exciting specimens that have been discovered and preserved from the tar pits. Located in Hancock Park, the pits can be enjoyed by walking around them, while the grounds contain magnificent life-size models of the prehistoric animals that were either in the pits or around them when they died. There are over a hundred tar pits, with the majority already excavated, and only Pit 91 is still excavated by researchers. The museum actually encloses the pit, where visitors are offered the opportunity to watch this exciting excavation during two months of the summer, when they are in the excavation process. La Brea has become one of the most famous and accessible paleontological sites in the world since it is located in a big city, that showcases dramatic displays that are highlighted at the Page Museum.
