, an art museum founded by wealthy oil magnate Armand Hammer. There is also is the magnifient Getty Center
, founded by J. Paul Getty and his vast oil wealth, the large complex is perched on its own hilltop looking over the city.
UCLA also adds to the cultural scene with destinations like the Fowler Museum
, the Hannah Carter Japanese Garden
, the Franklin D. Murphy Sculpture Garden
, and the UCLA Film and Television Archive
Another major media museum/archive in the area is the Paley Center for Media
, an organization founded by the former head of CBS in 1975. Here you can watch video material from their vast collection.
