The Getty Villa back reopen after yearlong closure. Here’s what you need to know about reservations and tickets



LOS ANGELES (CNS) — The Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades, which has been closed since March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, is reopening its museum and gardens Wednesday with a new Mesopotamian art exhibit.

The Getty Center in Brentwood remains closed to the public, but is expected to open next month. The Getty Library will reopen sometime afterward.

The villa’s Mesopotamian art exhibit, titled Mesopotamia: Civilization Begins,” was slated to open a few days after the venue was forced to close due to the pandemic. It will run through Aug. 16, and includes 5,000-year-old writing, architecture and art. Artifacts include a silver cult vase of the Sumerian king Enmetena and a glazed brick lion from the Ishtar Gate in Babylon.
