Let me start by saying I LOVE ART MUSEUMS. The High Museum of Art was a great afternoon adventure on a rainy day in Atlanta. We don't live in ATL, so we only had half a day to spend at what ever place we ended up going. I am in the Military and it was great to see that the... More

We went twice trying to see everything. Most Art Museum's I've been to have been short visits but the HIgh Museum has 4 different levels in 4 different quarters of the building. We got lost 2 times trying to find the featured exhibit. There really is something for everyone here in historical variances- a walk through time in art history... More

I was here with three of my family members and a 2 year old and everyone enjoyed themselves. Right now there is a cool exhibit in the courtyard of the museum featuring dozens of red hammocks which you can sit and relax in which can be fun for everyone. The museum has so much to see and do and plenty... More

My 6 y/o daughter and I visited this museum July 2014. I wanted to see the cars exhibit. The museum is quite large. There are several floors (approx. 4) which are all wheelchair accessible. There are many works of art from furniture to statues to paintings and even African art. The museum even had a small space for the kids... More

They are awesome. So worth our trip to Atlanta. I felt I little guilty paying for a hotel just to look at cars but it was well worth it.

A rainy Saturday afternoon in Atlanta. Perfect day for a museum visit. High museum is very easy to get to and had a really cool "concept cars" exhibition. After our main event of cars we decided to go thru the other galleries. What a pleasant surprise. Beautiful artwork and furniture and sculptures, etc... We were a family of four from... More

I've been to the High many times over the past 15 years or so. If you're a local I would recommend keeping an eye out for their special exhibits & going when one matches your interests. A budget friendly tip: go after 4pm on Fridays b/c it's half price admission. I think parking is cheaper if you arrive during a... More

We went to the museum to see the exhibit on Dream Cars. I thought my husband would enjoy it most, but the cars are so beautiful and the audio tour so entertaining that I too enjoyed it thoroughly. The audio tour was well worth the charge because of the extra information and videos it supplied. We toured some of the... More

If you like cars. If you like design. If you like fashion. If you like history. This is an absolute must visit! "Dream Cars" exhibit ends on September 7, 2014. My only regret? Only 18 or so items in the exhibit...wanted more and more and more! Unlike anything I have seen before.

We weren't sure what to do on a Saturday in Atlanta, but we saw that the High Museum had a special exhibit of innovative, fast cars. My son wanted to go, and the exhibit was first-rate, including cars that spanned all eras of manufacture and a wide variety of countries. The 1953 General Motors Firebird I XP-21 looks like a...
