This is a lovely, well-set-up museum, but I was surprised how small it is. Focus is primarily on American artists, and they have a great collection. But, you can see the whole museum in a couple of hours. It was enjoyable, but do not expect the National Gallery or Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The museum had among it's exhibits, two special shows. One show was a history of the Coca Cola bottle, most apropos for Atlanta, Coke's headquarters. Another stunning exhibit was work... More

Very nice collection of modern and classic art. We spent several hours enjoying the exhibits. The artworkwas well displayed and of a variety where everyone could enjoy a portion of the exhibit regardless of taste.

High museum of Art is wonderful place for art lovers, children, history enthusiastic people and more. The museum does a super job of providing different and interesting exhibits. We are lucky to have this institution in Atlanta.

The Louvre sent work that had never left Paris. Frida and Diego like never before. A wide range of spectacular art through the years, We go to the High every time we go to Atlanta and have never been disappointed. Go, just go!

We went up to the third floor to work our way down. The first exhibit was pretty modern art and I thought this will go very quick as most did not impress me. Then we went to the Stent Family wing and my opinion totally changed. My wife and I were doing plenty of ohhhing and ahhhing at the pieces... More

Robust collection of typical European/American art, but I was most intrigued by the more modern day sculptures and paintings--there was a fascinating mirrored dish-like structure that really plays with sound. The temporary Coca-Cola exhibit was actually really great, I enjoyed that one a lot. At least when I was here, they had a special deal starting from 4pm on Friday,... More
