The Getty Center offers free homeschool day October 28th


The Getty Center in Los Angeles will be offering free parking for homeschoolers on October 28th.

If you have been to the Getty Center, you are already aware of what an amazing place it is for the whole family to visit.

If this is your first time, make sure to swing by these great exhibits and activities:

Family Room

A place for families with children of all ages to discover a world of wonders, delights, and hands-on activities.

Art activities

Throughout the museum, there are opportunities to create art. Ask the front desk for the Family Fun at the Getty brochure.

Art scavenger hunt

Think looking at art is boring for kids? Think again. The Getty has devised a way to make art fun by offering Art Detective Cards. Can you find the hidden objects in the beautiful art?

Getty Guide

For a nominal fee of $5, you can use the Getty Guide, an audio tour of the 19 different objects in their collection. This is great for kids who learn best with sound the spoken word.


You can bring a sack lunch, or buy one of their many children's meals at the Garden Terrace Cafe.

If you've been thinking of going to the Getty to see what it's all about, or if you are a regular and want to spend some time with other homeschoolers admiring the collection and the grounds, use the free parking pass on October 28th, save $15, and have a great time exploring one of L.A.'s best family exursions.
