Mingei Member Art Excursion | Mingei International Museum

This event is sold out. Please email membership@mingei.org to be added to the waitlist.

Join us for a Mingei Members' Excursion to the Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades, CA.  This gorgeous Roman-style estate was the original home of the J. Paul Getty Museum before the Getty Center opened in 1997. View their collection of Etruscan pottery, admire gold jewelry from 250 B.C., or wander through the outdoor gardens and reflecting pools.

We’ll begin our day with free time to explore or join a guided tour of the gardens or collections (or both!) and then will break for lunch on one’s own at the Getty Villa’s Café. After lunch, revisit any part of the museum you would like to further explore or set aside time to shop at the Getty Museum Store.

Mingei Excursions are a wonderful way to see Art of The People outside of our Museum walls. Your ticket includes chartered bus transport to the Getty Villa, a light breakfast provided on route to our destination, treats for the return drive back to San Diego, as well as a tax deductible donation. Once you have registered, you will receive additional travel information and the tax deductible details via email from the Mingei membership team.

$120 Members | $150 Non-members
