The Getty Museum in Brentwood is set to open at its customary 10 a.m. time Wednesday one day after closing early because of a telephoned bomb threat.
The threatening phone call was received about 2:50 p.m. Tuesday at the museum at 1200 Getty Center Drive in the Sepulveda Pass area.
“We are working closely with the LAPD, which, in an abundance of caution, has asked us to close the Getty Center early and begin moving visitors from the site,” according to a museum statement Tuesday.
Officers were sent to the scene, but a bomb squad was not immediately activated, according to Officer Drake Madison of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Media Relations Section.
Police concluded their investigation by 6 p.m.
