We did not have time to visit all the exhibits but "Go West" makes the visit worthwhile in itself. The main gallery layout is superb, airy and not too crowded with works.
We spent a lot of time enjoying so many great works. This is a museum you could spend all day gazing at so many fantastic collections! There's a special, neat huge collection from the Louvre on display right now. There are 3 buildings and several floors--allocated your time to get around. We missed out due to time.
The nuseum is enjoyable for its' new exhibits but has too many permanent exhibits to draw visitors back very often. There is a preponderance of Romantic European art and not much variance in their special exhibits. The locals still reminisce about the huge Chinese loom exhibited many years ago. It filled the atrium and took several men to operate it... More
...that you do check the place out. They are always rotating shows through, however, for larger exhibitions they are usually there for a long time, so if I get the itch to see something new I have to wait. I think it's free for military and discounted for students with valid ID. Make sure you pay extra for the headphones,... More
Dont miss the Lichtenstein out front. Kids will love it. I suggest you check the current exhibits before heading there to see if there is something especially of interest to you. While it is a very nice museum, it doesn't rival the worls'd leading museums of art.
I well understand that Renzo Piano has become the art museum architect of the day and that Richard Meier has an extensive and esteemed record as an architect but this is simply an awful building. It has absolutely nothing to do with its site and neighbors. It looks as though it should have been placed on a slight rise with... More
This museum has it all--beautiful architecture, furniture exhibits, photography, folk art and traveling exhibits. It was a new discovery around every corner. It is fabulous and it's part of the city pass!
This museum was beautiful in terms of the displays as well as the building itself. The displays were interesting and well laid out and the building is a work of art . We also had dinner at the restaurant beside the museum which was excellent.
I love to visit the High Museum. The exhibit spaces are spacious and well lit, and it's an easy place to get around. If you go at opening time on Saturday, inexpensive street parking is available. The museum shop has interesting items; some are tied in to the visiting exhibits and some to the permanent collections.
So much to see in this set of buildings around a courtyard. Saw two new traveling exhibitions: The Tuileries and Western Art. Highly recommended. Lots of books in the gift shop. Restaurant served good quality food. Service was fast and efficient. Parking is easy.
