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.

The jazz was wonderful and there were a lot of people who attended and enjoyed thr atmosphere. The exhibits are wonderful. I like the free first Saturday for Fulton Co. residents.

This is a high-class art museum that have a decent permanent collection, some eccentric themes and collections, and hosts the large traveling art exhibits. It's very busy on the first and last weekend of a national exhibit, otherwise the halls are very peaceful. World-class building layout and lighting is a plus, parking and food options could be enhanced.

You can start at the bottom and spiral upward through the centuries, or at the top and go from modern backward. We did the latter. Thoughtful mix of paintings and sculptures, decorative arts (ceramics, textiles, furniture). Also a good mix of ultra-sophisticated and folk art. Spend a day here and feast the eyes.

Excellent! Yearly membership and members' free parking bring me down often and I am always enlightened and stimulated and it makes for a neat visit with friends. Limited ourselves to these two exhibits and enjoyed the old Habsburgs and the new fashions by Iris Van Herpen. Habsburgs are gone now but Van Herpen will be there through May. Ate at... More

Except for the furniture exhibits. Lots of wasted space. For a museum with great architecture expected more inside.

Only a couple of Monet and Renior on display and the American Art 18th is fair, but otherwise this museum is unremarkable except, the new exhibit by clothing designer, Iris Van Herpen. She really pushes the boundaries of using 3D printing technology and her hands creating some spactacular jaw dropping pieces. There is a film you should watch to understand... More

I went there for the first time not too long ago. They had a decent art collection. Not as many ultra-famous names as museums in bigger cities, but definitely some I recognized. I'm by no means an avid art fan, but I do appreciate it. I appreciated all the pieces that had extra information attached (compared the the usual title,... More

We went to the opening of a fashion exhibit, complete with a ballet performance and opening remarks over drinks. I was particularly impressed with the exhibit set up and use of space as well as the display. I was also exited over the excitement in the building itself, there was def a buzz. Strolled the other parts of museum but... More
