Went there for a "history of automobiles" exhibit. Excellent presentation and arrangement allowing hundreds of visitors without seeming crowded. Nearby reduced-rate parking.

The museum is nice, however it isn't very impressive. It does not offer much art pieces to look at, unless when you go for a special exhibition - which I did and loved it: the Terracotta Army". It was the exhibition of artifacts depicting the armies of Qin Shi Huang - 210-209 BCE. It was amazing and very impressive. So... More

The presentation of this art museum is very contemporary and modern. The collection is mixed with contemporary, European art from the renaissance and baroque periods, African art, American art and photography.

Visit the High often so you can see the new and varying exhibits and events held in this beautiful building. Admission is very reasonable but it's best to buy a yearly membership.

A great structure with an impressive collection of works, including permanent sculpture and glass pieces that are quite unique. The Andy Warhol of race riots was particularly memorable, but the one thing that stuck with me was that the staff and security was by far the most friendly of any art museum I've ever been to. Always quick with a... More

We went to the High Museum specifically to see Wynn Bullock's exhibit called Reflections. The museum is in downtown Atlanta, but parking is available near by in some very tightly packed parking garages. We enjoyed the selection of hammocks in the plaza outside the museum. They do let you take non-flash photos if you sign a copywriter release and wear... More

I have been a docent at the High for five years and can tell you from experience that each visit will leave you with new insights and a sparked imagination. The lower level in the Wieland wing is often overlooked so it is rarely crowded--the African Galleries are there as well as rotating works on paper and photography. Weekday afternoons... More
