Getty Villa now using an upgraded ticketing system for admission
Visiting the Getty Villa in Malibu is free but it requires timed tickets for entry. Now the process of obtaining those free tickets has received an overhaul with a new, upgraded online system recently launched by the museum.
The new system is intended to make it easier to obtain Getty Villa tickets as well as tickets to other museum-related events, such as lectures, stage productions and conferences. (Tickets aren't required for the Getty Center in Brentwood.)
Users who are new to the system will have to go through a registration process that includes filling out an online form.
The Getty's upgraded system, which debuted in October, features a new user interface and a cleaner, more intuitive navigation. The site utilizes a shopping basket application that allows users to check out multiple items at once.
If the upgraded system has you confounded, you can still obtain tickets the old-fashioned way, by telephone, at (310) 440-7300.
And while entrance to the Getty Villa remains free, keep in mind that parking costs $15 per vehicle, except for evening public programming and other special programs held after 5 p.m., when it's free.
