The Getty Villa in Malibu  is an elegant little place, overlooking the ocean and with a grand entrance. One can go there to see some beautiful Greek and Roman artifacts or amazing architecture modeled after a first-century Roman country house in Italy or to check out the papyrus plants among others. Let some pictures do the talking.

Going to the museum was an interesting experience, even with my objectionably little knowledge of history and the Roman Empire. We saw so many beautiful things that people were capable of making thousand years ago. The Greek mythology and culture is evident from the sculptures of Satyr and head of Medusa and the numerous sarcophagi intricately carved with mythological stories.

They have activity rooms for kids too. And an open air theater. Definitely worth a visit.
