Make a Reservation to Teach on Your Own
Make a reservation to bring your class to the Getty Center and teach students yourself. Please limit teaching in the galleries to groups of 25 or fewer, and note that staff-led tours have priority.

You may also call (310) 440-7300 and tell the reservations agent the date and time of your visit, the number of students, and the number of parking spaces needed. For questions, please e-mail academicprograms@getty.edu.

Facilitated Visits
College and university faculty may arrange a visit facilitated by Museum educators. These visits are tailored to the needs and interests of faculty and students and complement classroom learning. To get the most out of these opportunities, faculty should submit a request to visit the Getty Center with students. Contact us at least one month in advance of the preferred date for the visit. A representative of the education department will contact the professor to discuss the visit in more detail, including which artworks the students will view at the Museum and the goals of the instructor. In addition to a single visit, we welcome proposals for multiple visits by a class, sessions in Museum study rooms, and workshops with Museum staff and practicing artists. Please note that we are currently able to fulfill a limited number of these reservations.

For further information, please contact the Education Department at (310) 440-6404 or by e-mail at academicprograms@getty.edu. However, the request form below is the best way to initiate plans for a visit.


Getty Research Institute Tours
The Getty Research Institute also offers group tours of its exhibitions. Send a message to GRIconnect@getty.edu to schedule a tour.
