Come and explore the extensively renovated Getty Villa Museum in Malibu, which just completed a yearlong reinstallation featuring redesigned galleries and newly displayed artifacts previously in storage. View freshly conserved objects such as first-century A.D. frescoes from a Villa near Pompeii and funerary relief portraits from Palmyra, an ancient Syrian city that flourished during the Roman Empire. Objects in the permanent collection have also been rearranged to present the history of Greek and Roman art in a more chronological manner, and a new ground-floor gallery houses art from neighboring cultures. The Getty Villa is the only museum in the U.S. solely devoted to antiquities from the Mediterranean region and contains over 1,200 Greek, Roman and Etruscan relics spanning 7,000 years of ancient art, from the end of the Stone Age to the fall of the Roman Empire. Your tour includes four hours to explore the museum at your leisure and have lunch on your own at the museum’s cafe, which serves casual Mediterranean fare. For more information about special exhibitions, please visit the Getty website at www.getty.edu.
