I loved going to the High Museum when I lived in Atlanta. The "Veiled Rebekah," the European collection and the American collection were my favorites. There is a very modern restaurant attached and a cafe for enjoying espresso. The lecture series are interesting. I became familiar with Van Gogh, Mondrian, Salvador Dali and so many others growing up in Atlanta,... More

Visited several times, though it has been a while. Every time, the exhibits were easy to see, and nobody rushes you through. We have always enjoyed the Hi!

If you like museum and different genres of art, you will love the High. The Contemporary exhibit is the most interesting to me but the others ones also appeal to many different tastes.

Always a fun stop for us while in Atlanta. The museum had several wonderful exhibits. The photographs by Gordon Parks were wonderful and are very telling about life under segregation. Each one is a unique. I loved the interactive music station in one of the exhibits. I could have stood there for hours playing.

The High has a pleasing variety of displays. From classic to modern and even the occasional car show! A great value for a minimal investment of time and $$ and you can readily boost your culture quota. A beautiful facility and conveniently located in midtown. If you are local to Atlanta, do yourself a favor and join - there is... More

I never missed a visit to the High Museum whenever I'm in Atlanta. They have an incredible permanent collection and creative, topical special exhibitions. This trip they featured photographs by Helen Levitt and newly discovered photos by Life Magazine photographer Gordon Parks. The next show will feature illustrations by Mo Willems, author and illustrator of such children's books as Knuffle... More

If you're looking for an affordable, easy, and enjoyable way to entertain guests, spend time with friends, have some personal reflection time, or have a chic but budget-friendly date-night, a visit to the High Museum of Art is a great way to spend an afternoon, particularly a Friday evening. On Fridays from 4pm-9pm, tickets are half-price and include admission to... More
