This stunning, porcelain-enameled building was designed by famed architect Richard Meier and is rivaled only by the art inside. Featuring American, European and African art, as well as decorative art and photography, the High Museum boasts a permanent collection of over 11,000 pieces, many of which can be viewed from different levels of the four-story, glass atrium.

Visiting the High Museum has all the pleasure of other museums with wonderful curatorship and an architecturally interesting space, but it's not as crowded as all those other places! You can really wander and let the art speak to you. It has significant holdings in quite a few fields. I was particularly impressed by their contemporary painting selection. I saw... More

The building is beautiful and easy to navigate. There were several special exhibits that were exceptional. The museum is fairly small (compared to ones in NYC or Chicago), but it has a terrific folk art collection.

The museum is always nice. Not particularly good for young children unless they just like art and asking questions. For adults there are some great exhibits. Note active military get free parking and admission. Check the website or call for additional details on that.

Best place in the ATL to meet the wine sipping, likely tedious, well kept doll of you dreams. Solid entertainment for the pretending well to do. Maybe dady's money..but hey with thoes gams, you're going to have your game on. Study the online programing to find the discount tickets. Study the artist and learn something you troll. Good fun

This is an interesting museum,architecturally and collection wise. Our visit was about an hour, which is not enough time. It is not an inexpensive museum and the fee for three of us was so close to an entry level membership, my son bought one on the recommendation of the ticket saleswoman. The architecture is soaring and allows for a wonderful... More

We had a great visit at the High in April. We were able to see the Wilfredo Lam, Gordon Parkers, and Romare Bearden exhibitions. All very nice exhibits and great to see it free on Fulton County free weekend.

It's not easy to get my hubby to go to a museum, but he wasn't sorry. There happened to be a classic car exhibit at the time, so the guys were happier than they might have been. There's a nice little restaurant inside the museum as well, so we were able to grab some lunch. No one went "hangry"!

The High Art Museum in Atlanta was not what I'd expected. In some ways it exceeded my expectations, in others, not so much. Ensconced at 1280 Peachtree Street NE, the museum is about two miles north of Atlanta's congested downtown in the arty neighborhood of the Woodruff Arts Center. As with many other younger art museums in the U.S., the... More

Whenever the High Museum has high profile artists like Dali,Picasso, or Matisse, the exhibits are phenomenal! Great for taking your kids for an art class or a foreign language class.
