The fabulous Getty Villa (Malibu) underwent about 4 years of rennovation and expansion and reopened January 28 of this year. The site is now home to Roman, Greek and Etruscan antiquities only. Nearly everthing in this museum is at least 1900 years old.
All plants on the grounds are thought to be plants that existed in the Ancient Greek and Roman days.

Although admission is free you must get tickets. Although Getty claims you can order tickets online you will find they are never available. You must call in the mornings (weekdays) before 10 AM to get a date and your tcikets. The Getty is closed on Mondays.
