Strolling the quiet halls of a beautiful museum, hand-in-hand with the one you love, can be a very romantic way to spend an afternoon. Consider a trip to the J. Paul Getty Museum for a memorable date filled with visual arts, romance and even some education.
The J. Paul Getty Museum is world-famous, dedicated to preserving the visual arts, with myriad exhibits, galleries and other items to explore. Take a tour through the European section with lots of famous paintings, drawings, manuscripts, and sculptures, including works by Van Gogh, Monet, Cezanne and Chardin.
Be sure to check the website ahead of time to see what the current exhibitions and installations are at the museum. With so many different exhibitions touring though, you will be able to return for several visits to see many different amazing collections. One thing is for sure though, no matter what you see, you’ll learn a lot about visual arts and you’ll gain a new appreciation for the collections at the Getty Center.
While you are there, take a walk in the Central Garden, the most romantic place on the Getty Center grounds. The Central Garden is home to a 134,000 square-foot design filled with a huge variety of plants that descend along a stream. The flowers and plants cascade along a stone waterfall, creating an always changing view created by world-renowned artist Robert Irwin. You could easily spend the entire visit just strolling around these amazing gardens, but don’t miss out on the rest of the amazing museum.
Make sure to start your romantic trip to the Getty Center the right way, by driving there in the CLS63 AMG Coupe from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. You’ll want to arrive there in style, and there is no better car for such a romantic and elegant afternoon.
