We took a trip yesterday to The Getty Villa in Malibu. It was a beautiful day, clear and sunny and the ocean is literally right across the street from the museum which is nestled in the hills.
We wanted to see The Aztec Pantheon which was only on exhibit for a few more days. Of course when we got home we realized we didn't take any pictures of it! It was really amazing! There were so many so many unbelievable pieces on display including a sacrificial stone and vessels used in offerings to the Gods. It was really incredible!
This is one of the first views as you approach the museum from the staircase above. A little walk but so beautiful!
The long halls and marble floors were just breathtaking. There was so much attention to detail in the architecture.
My little monkeys. They really enjoyed it, especially my 8yr. old. He is very into Ancient Greece and mythology right now so he was in awe of everything.
Again the details in everything were breathtaking! There was so much pottery and to see the real thing in person just leaves you speechless.
There were pictures showing how the statues were found and excavated. Some were standing straight up in ground under layers of rock.
As we left you can see the ocean in the background. It was a wonderful day, I only wish we would have taken more pictures of the art itself! You just get so caught up in it that you forget to snap photos. Keeping little ones busy hands occupied is also not easy. They were really good though and I look forward to visiting again someday!
