  • Additional Information (if any):
    I figured that Museo de Getty means the Getty museum. I had troubles translating “Espiralidoso”. The best I could find is that it’s part of Italian version of “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” from “Mary Poppins” movie - Supercalifragilistichespiralidoso. What it means in the context of the Getty museum - I have no clue. Maybe someone else can figure it out, but it doesn’t make sense to me.

One of the photos of this wayspot shows in the center of it a sign for an exhibit that was in the museum in 2014 and in the off-center a sign for the Getty museum:

The exhibit sign is long gone by now, as you can imagine. The museum sign is still there, though. They were approximately here, at the Entrance Hall of the museum:

The other photo shows some plants, skylights and a part of the Entrance Hall structure:

This view can be seen from the other side of the Entrance Hall, approximately here:

There’s nothing special on this photo at all.

This place is the Getty Center. It has multiple wayspots with Getty in their name that show different views of different structures of the center and of the Getty museum (the museum is part of the center according to the map linked above).

Considering that we have a wayspot whose name doesn’t make sense and whose photos show random stuff on one side of the building and a long-gone sign on another, I suggest removing this wayspot completely.

If you do want to keep it, I suggest moving it to the circled area mentioned before…:

…and also renaming it to J. Paul Getty Museum and removing both photos. When I was there on 4/27/2024, I took another photo that I can submit either as a new wayspot if this wayspot is removed, or add it to this wayspot if it gets fixed, and I think it’s much better than its current photos:

(The people behind are actually just another poster, ignore them:

After reviewing the additional evidence provided, we’ve decided to retire the Wayspot in question. Thanks!
