The Getty Center - New Family Fun

Looking for a place to bring the kids, have fun and inspire the wee ones???  Well The Getty Center is for you!

The Getty's New Family Room Opened August 10, 2004, Offering a Mini-Gallery of Wonders to Delight and Discover.

Totally redesigned, with five activity coves and treasure-hunt walls that surround the room, the Getty's new Family Room is bursting with innovative activities to stimulate kids' interest in art. Parents and kids decorate a giant illuminated manuscript, build a tube sculpture, or play with camera lenses and a wall of mirrors, and more.

In the new Family Room, kids can relax and read on a luxurious bed just like an 18th-century French aristocrat, fill in the blank parts of a wall-sized illuminated manuscript page with their own designs, build a tube sculpture inspired by Martin Puryear's installation at the Getty Center, take their place in a parade scene from a James Ensor painting, explore David Hockney's photography with camera lenses and a wall of mirrors, and much more.

Then there are the treasure-hunt walls that hug the entire room, with intriguing and unexpected details of over 70 objects in the Getty's collection to discover through peepholes and then hunt for in the galleries.
