The High has a very nice permanent collection and the regularly changing special exhibits make repeat visits worthwhile. If you've already been before, find out what the special exhibits will be before visiting, as they may not appeal to you. Also, I recommend getting a CityPass if you're planning to visit several sites to save some money on admission fees.... More

I've been to the High on a number of occasions. There is always something to see, yet the exhibits can be hit or miss. The permanent collection is top notch, however, and usually satisfies even the most complicated tastes. Research the featured exhibits, as you can be mightily disappointed sometimes. But more often than not, whats offered will be worth... More

Doesnt matter if you are an artist or a mom with small kids, there is always something to see and do at the High. Hands on for the kids, touring exhibits let you see the masters as well as other media displayed in beautiful rooms. Exotic cars on exhibit this spring. Heading there next week. Cant wait. Dont miss.

My favorite times at the High are when special exhibits... More

They had some hands on exhibits that we spent awhile at. We went quickly through some of the art but overall he enjoyed it. Just the size of some of the paintings impressed him.

The High Museum has a permanent collection and has travelling collections -- all excellent. The folk art exhibit (permanent) is one of my favorites, as is the permanent collection of contemporary art. The building itself is lovely. It's easily accessed via MARTA -- the subway or bus -- and it's fun to visit it and then walk to Piedmont Park... More

My husband and I love visiting the High. We used to go all the time when we lived *in* Midtown, but now that we've moved to the 'burbs, we don't go as often. Even so, we still make the time to go fairly regularly because we enjoy it so much. We've been members for a few years now and I'm... More

Such a lovely museum to wander thru....architecturally pleasing and the exhibits are unlike any you will see elsewhere. This is a unique collection. Also wander the gardens to see the outside pieces...loved it!!! This would be a great museum for kids too.
