Art Odyssey (Getty Villa)

Saturdays at 11:00 am - Getty Villa

This 30-minute gallery program for Families combines a tour with lots of Family teamwork. An educator leads you and a small group of other Families to explore works of Art. Learn about mythical monsters; hear tales about gods and goddesses of the ancient world; meet the mightiest of men, Hercules; or discover the daily lives of ancient Romans. 

After your Art Odyssey, your educator suggests other Family-friendly ways to Explore the Art on view, so that you and your family can have a great day at the Getty Villa!
