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.

Georgia's largest art museum has expanded its footprint with several new buildings in the last few years and interesting diverse art collections. It attracts yearly special exhibits on loan from other museums and private collections. It has many member events and options that make it a popular place for locals and tourists.

I'm not a huge fan of art museums, but I did enjoy some of the exhibits here. The architecture is Guggenheim-like, with a spiral staircase taking you to different levels. There was a fun 1950s modern exhibit, and a very enjoyable folk art/naive art section, focusing on artists from the region. That alone is worth a visit, if you like... More

UI liked how bright and airy this museum is. There are curved ramps to take you from level to level, if you do not want to use the elevator. It is not very big, but you can spend a few enjoyable hours here.

You should know and love art if you want to love this place. I'm not a huge art fan but I still semi enjoyed it. Well kept, clean, and had a wide selection that is four stories high. Wheelchair friendly also! VETERANS get free entrance! Enjoy!

The museum center is wheelchair and stroller accessible which we find is an issue at some places we have visited. Our children enjoy visiting the museum every time were in Atlanta. Make sure you check out their specials because there are great discounts for students, educators, and military.

I have been here before with a friend and really enjoyed it. Recently I have discovered that my kids enjoy museums too so we have been planning on coming down for a while. Every second Sunday, they do Sunday Funday and offer free admission as well as projects and things for kids and people to do. My kids had a... More

As an Atlantan native, I have fond memories of the High museum. I used to do my homework from highschool on its grounds because it's just so chill and beautiful. As a young adult, I went to various social functions and dates. As a middle aged adult I take my small kids there to expose them to culture and art.... More

The museum is very spacious. I enjoyed all the exhibits I could with the minimal amount of time I had. The coke exhibits were very informative. A lot of one of a kind items here. Worth the visit.

For a city that is sometimes culturally sparse, this is a great museum to visit while in Atlanta for art lovers. Recent expansion has only improved an already high-quality museum with expanded programming, higher quality traveling exhibitions and more events.
