    From Wikipedia:

    The Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades, California, USA, is one of two locations of the J. Paul Getty Museum. The Getty Villa is an educational center and museum dedicated to the study of the arts and cultures of ancient Greece, Rome and Etruria.

    The Villa is frequently and erroneously said to be in the city of Malibu, but the site is actually in the City of Los Angeles in the community of Pacific Palisades. In fact, the Malibu city border begins a mile west of the Villa. The museum itself perpetuates this error, to the irritation of Palisades residents. [1] One story is that when the Villa first opened in 1974, the Pacific Palisades Post Office felt it couldn't handle the additional mail, and the Malibu Post Office assumed the responsibility instead, leading to the Villa's mailing address being in Malibu rather than in Los Angeles.
