Photographer's Note

To visit the Getty Center is free. You need to pay only if you drive a car to visit the museum, which costs $7.00 parking fee per car.

Next to the mostly underground parking structure is the lower tram station. The design concept for the tram is a "horizontal elevator" along a gentle slope from the parking structure to the upper station where the main exhibition area is located. It takes 5 minutes for the about 10 mile/hr speed tram ride. You may choose to walk up to the center, which may take 15 minutes walking.

The architect, Meier said, the tram is to have the visitors being elevated out of their day-to-day experience. At the same time, they'll have a powerful sense of being in the center of this great city.

In this picture, a tram is just arrived to the tram station. On the left of this picture is the walk way to the exhibition center. The white triangles in the background are shading umbrellas for picnic area.
