Mission Statement
The J. Paul Getty Museum seeks to inspire curiosity about, and enjoyment and understanding of, the visual arts by collecting, conserving, exhibiting and interpreting works of art of outstanding quality and historical importance. To fulfill this mission, the Museum continues to build its collections through purchase and gifts, and develops programs of exhibitions, publications, scholarly research, public education, and the performing arts that engage our diverse local and international audiences. All of these activities are enhanced by the uniquely evocative architectural and garden settings provided by the Museum's two renowned venues: the Getty Villa and the Getty Center.

About the The Getty Villa
The collection and changing exhibitions at the Getty Villa offer 7,000 years of ancient art, from the end of the Stone Age to the fall of the Roman Empire.

Antiquities in the J. Paul Getty Museum Collection
The Getty Villa houses the J. Paul Getty Museum's collection of approximately 44,000 Greek, Roman, and Etruscan antiquities. Over 1,200 works are on view in 23 galleries devoted to the permanent collection, with five additional galleries for changing exhibitions.

With objects dating from 6,500 B.C. to A.D. 400, the collection contains monumental sculptures as well as artifacts of everyday life.

Galleries
The galleries are arranged by theme and include Gods and Goddesses, Dionysos and the Theater, and Stories of the Trojan War, among others. This approach enables visitors to view the artworks in the context of their use in classical societies, encouraging a deeper understanding of the ancient world.

Exhibitions and Collaborative Work
Changing exhibitions feature loans from renowned collections around the world; reflect the collaborative work of the Getty Research Institute, Conservation Institute, and the Museum; and often incorporate works from the Getty Research Institute collection.
