The J. Paul Getty Museum collects in seven distinct areas, including Greek and Roman antiquities, European paintings, drawings, manuscripts, sculpture and decorative arts, and photographs gathered internationally. The Museum's mission is to make the collection meaningful and attractive to a broad audience by presenting and interpreting the works of art through educational programs, special exhibitions, publications, conservation, and research.

The J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Center in Los Angeles houses European paintings, drawings, sculpture, illuminated manuscripts, decorative arts, and European and American photographs. Except for photography, the Getty's collections are centered on other than American areas of interest.

The J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Villa in Malibu is an educational center and museum dedicated to the study of the arts and cultures of ancient Greece, Rome, and Etruria.

With two locations, the Getty Villa in Malibu and the Getty Center in Los Angeles, the Getty is able to serve a wide variety of audiences through its expanded range of exhibitions and programming in the visual arts. Museum hours and applicable fees available on museum's website.
