This stunning, porcelain-enameled building was designed by famed architect Richard Meier and is rivaled only by the art inside. Featuring American, European and African art, as well as decorative art and photography, the High Museum boasts a permanent collection of over 11,000 pieces, many of which can be viewed from different levels of the four-story, glass atrium.

Easy access, great exhibits, particularly the Gordon Parks photo exhibit on, Segregation Story. Beautiful, emotional and historically accurate capture of a past that we shall never forget. The museum is a great source of culture displaying American and European masterpieces. Certainly a great way to spend an afternoon by yourself or with your family.

The High Museum is very deserving of its great reputation. We enjoyed the collections, especially the contemporary art, but were disappointed that some of the permanent collection was not available to be seen when we were there. The downside was getting around - the museum layout is very confusing (to the point of being annoying). There should be connecting bridges... More

The exhibits that are there are good, but compared to the Metropolitan Museum and the Museum of Fine Art, the exhibits are so much more limited. Wish there was more to see. Nice space!

I have visited this wonderful museum twice and I loved it! There are always interesting exhibitions and the permanent collections are great too. I especially liked the concept car exhibition. I love the fact that they have free entry on the first Saturdays of the month for Fulton County residents and Bank of America card holders. Yippee! The museum is... More

The High always has something special in store for you when you visit. The permanent collection is also nice but it's the special exhibits that they excel at and it is always worth the trip.

Very beautiful building. The collections are interesting and educating. Staff is very friendly and willing to chit chat. A personal favorite was the folk art area, very interesting to see so many American treasures! Took advantage of the college student March special and got to check out the entire museum for only five dollars!

Its a well laid out museum, which pretty good traveling exhibits. But considering Atlanta's size- it really isn't that special. If you compare it to the museums in cities of comparable size, its far behind actually. The African art collection is a nice addition, but really only a small room of items. Also, not very kid friendly.

I've lived in Atlanta since 1996, and I had never been to the High. I was so impressed I purchased an annual membership. I'm so excited to get to know this fine museum better!
