Since my work moved next door I have gone here 3 times! I love running out during lunch to de-stress with some art. The exhibits are well curated and there are always fun events.

We were visiting Atlanta and found this place literally across from our hotel. There was an amazing exhibit of Wilfredo Lam that we really enjoyed.

I love the High!!! Great exhibits all year around. Went in January to two photography exhibits. My son, husband and I go all times of the year as there is something always new to see. Sometimes we just go for the beauty and peace of the exhibits. Go can take in part or all of the exhibits and then do... More

The High is both an Art Museum and a piece of art itself. The architecture makes for an experience appealing to the eye and to the experience. We have a family membership and go about once a quarter. There is a good rotation of new exhibits and a fabulous set of permanent collection pieces worth seeing over and over again.... More

Went last Friday evening for panel discussion and viewing exhibit. Lam exhibit is fantastic and a must see. Michael Rooks, Contemporary Curator, has really outdone himself. Great way to spend a few hours and always new things to see. Great photography collection as well.

Best museum in ATL. They do a really good job of changing out the exhibits, so you can go every four months or so & see something new. Plus, the building itself is a piece of art.

The High Museum is a "most do" when in Atlanta. The permanent collection is fabulous, the traveling shows are worth scheduling a trip around. The space is light, airy and conducive to appreciating the pieces. Parking can be tough, but it's worth driving a bit to find a spot.

The High is a magnificent gallery, beautifully architected, and definitely a must-see in Atlanta. It features exhibits from around the world, exhibited in dramatic fashion in the many galleries within the walls of this Museum. We recently visited the Dream Cars exhibit and were impressed with both the live features, as well as the art displayed. The High website is... More

I have enjoyed numerous trips to the High. I especially enjoyed the car show which was a very unique experience of a different type of art.
