Great day trip! especially if you have kids!
The J. Paul Getty Museum in Malibu is not only a spectacular location, it also houses an immense collecton of dazzling art. But the best part is how family-friendly the museum is. We visited there yesterday with a 4 year old and a 6 year old. Both boys had a great time -especially when we found the Children's museum where kids of all ages can draw and make their own art to either take home or post on the display walls. The highlight for all of us were the amazing gardens where we found secret waterfalls and vast places to play. You have to pay a modest fee for parking, but otherwise the entire site is free. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the LA area!
