We stopped by on our way to Florida from Toronto and wanted to check out some of their European pieces. When I saw they had the Dream Cars exhibit on I was thrilled. It was fantastically curated and every single car took my breath away. I feel really lucky to have been in the right place to see this exhibit.... More

Excellent collection which l did not expect. Dream car exhibition was superb even for a novice like me. Looking at these made me see how these can really be art pieces in their own right. The permanent exhibitions are excellent especially with the focus on American artists including furniture pieces. The mix of art paintings, furniture, glassware, porcelain etc is... More

Drove 300 miles to see the special Dream Cars exhibit. Well worth the trip. Beautiful venue. If going, plan to spend a couple of hours at this exhibit, then take in as many of the other permanent/temporary exhibits as you can in the museum. All exhibits are well presented and worth your time. Easy pay parking adjacent.

Went through the Dream Cars exhibit today at the High Museum of Art. It was a wonderful journey into a world of automobile style and design that is seldom seen in today's world. This Atlanta landmark museum never fails to deliver exhibits that are excellent for patrons of all ages and tastes. The building itself is an architectural wonder and... More

We travel to Atlanta to see the dream cars exhibit this week. What a great and worthy trip! This exhibit was uniquely displayed, well organized, and enhanced by audio and visual iPod use if desired. The museum itself had excellent restaurants and Café offerings. Staff was friendly and helpful. The modern art museum on floor three was wonderful spacious and... More

Really neat cars but only about a dozen. Went to see the rest of the museum since the car exhibit only took a few minutes. Was very pleasantly surprised

I visited the High to see the "Dream Cars" exhibit. It was outstanding! For a car guy this exhibit was Nirvana. I heard several people, who weren't automobile enthusiasts, say that they enjoyed it as well. I also took the opportunity to view some of the other exhibits at the High. I found it to be an excellent museum. The... More

My boyfriend and I recently went to the Concept Cars exhibit at the High Museum with his sister and brother-in-law. They had seen the exhibit already but were happy to go back with us. We were short on time and raced through but it was still worth it. Between parking, waiting on the ticket purchase line, and waiting on the... More
