The museum is beautiful and has many galleries on the campus including a wonderful gift shop. I went specifically for the Gordon Parks exhibit which was tremendous (do not miss this wonderful study of Segregation). I was also surprised to find two other photographers being featured with similar themes, making for an overall enjoyable visit.

I love coming here. There are a ton of paintings in different areas of the building. Some are very old while other are not that old. Great place in Atlanta to visit.

A friend and I visited the museum last summer for the first time. First off, the location is great. It is extremely easy to get to and parking is fantastic. The grounds are wide open and very pretty. The museum is on multiple floors, accessible by stairs and elevators. They have a variety of exhibits. When we went, they had... More

The High Museum is a part of the contemporary Woodruff Arts Center Complex. Before entering the building be sure to check out Roy Lichtenstein's House sculpture, one of his last works. I began my visit with one of the museum's special exhibitions "Cézanne and the Modern", made up mainly of works from Henry Pearlman's personal collection. An audio guide was... More

This is a full service museum, paint to sculpture (oil to stone), sound to light (choir to colour), kitchen to bedroom (furniture), skylight to basement (modern to less so), soup to nuts (cafeteria). Compares interestingly to the best over the world. Already in Georgia? ... you're close enough to examine it.

I liked the exhibit on Cezzane, though its not my favorite style. The museum has a good collection of modern art as well as some interesting furniture. Their permanent collection is nice to check out and it won't take you too long to browse through- Ga folk art, European art, etc. I really enjoyed the photography exhibit on "Black in... More

I carry my Art students each year to the High. We are never disappointed. We always wish we had more time to explore. We loved the red hammock exhibit this year!

My most recent visit was for the Cezanne exhibit and was pleased as usual. The past shows that I have attended as well as this one always seem to be cohesively displayed and with a good flow in mind. Friendly staff, restaurant on premiss with pleanty more nearby and an overall pleasing ambiance create a delightful experience. If your visiting... More

This is just one of those places if your a museum buff or just into design should just go to. I enjoyed my one time visit and probably will end up going back.
