The Getty Museum is introducing a new parking program that will allow visitors to visit both the Getty Center in Brentwood and the Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades on the same day and only pay once for parking. The new rule is scheduled to go into effect Saturday.

Parking at either location currently costs $15. If visitors want to experience both sites on the same day, they would have to pay a total of $30 per vehicle. Under the new program, visitors will only have to pay $15 once and obtain a coupon that is good for same-day complimentary parking at the other Getty.  

Admission to either site is always free, though advance timed admission is required for the Getty Villa. Both sites charge $10 for parking after 5 p.m. Evening parking used to be free but that ended in 2011.

The Getty Center is closed on Mondays; the Getty Villa is closed on Tuesdays.
