Tram at getty center (time-lapse)
It should be noted that certain GPS directions to the Getty Center are inaccurate. Regardless of what your GPS says, the Getty Center’s only public entrance is at the intersection of Getty Center Drive and Sepulveda Boulevard. From the suburban community to the south, there is no public access to the Getty Center.
From the street level entrance to the top of the hill, a computer-operated tram transports you. The tram is fully wheelchair accessible. Take the elevators up to the Lower Tram Station from the parking structure (T1).
Instead of taking the tram, visitors are welcome to walk up or down the hill on the pedestrian sidewalk. The path is approximately 3/4 mile long and has a fairly steep incline. The walk will take between 15 and 20 minutes.
