The High has a good variety of exhibits. Our party ranged from a senior citizen to teens. All found a favorite piece and learned more about the artist. You can see everything at your own pace. Great gift shop. Would go back again.

We went to see the Cezanne exhibit. There were a few from a private collection and we enjoyed the view. The rest of the museum had some interesting pieces. The staff was helpful and plentiful. We stopped for coffee after walking thru the museum and that was a plus. There is outdoor seating and an elevator for the visitors convenience.... More

We traveled to Atlanta specifically to see the current exhibition of Impressionists' and Post Impressionists' paintings on loan from the private collection of Henry and Rose Pearlman, which included an outstanding selection of works by artists such as Cézanne, Degas, van Gogh, Manet, Pissarro, Gauguin, and Modigliani. It was spectacular. But the High has a diverse permanent collection of excellent... More

The third Friday of every month The High stays open until 10pm and features live music. Half price admission available after 4pm. Love the Howard Finster Collection.

Atmosphere serene, wonderful permanent collection and the current juxtaposition of the Moderns with sounds of the Renaissance, and then13/14th century marbles from Florence. Sitting in the pews, absorbing the early music, was a rich audio visual experience indeed. The current exhibition of Cezanne and the Moderns is the Pearlman Collection, on loan from Princeton, so a great opportunity to see... More

Our visit to the High was a nice way to spend the afternoon. The venue is very comfortable, clean, and well-exhibited. The museum is close to the Art Center subway stop, which helped to make the visit easy and efficient. As a retired military service member, my wife and I enjoyed free admission. The collection does not include many "headliner"... More

Really liked the art collection. The High is not a large museum but it does a good job at displaying its own collection. Additionally, the High has interesting traveling tours of art. The only drawback is that I haven't found a t shirt that I really want to buy from the traveling exhibits.

We have a family membership, but mostly my wife and I visit. We like to preview the new exhibitions and then grab lunch nearby. The quality of the exhibits is excellent and it is not as crowded as ny museums.

We enjoyed the High Museum very much! It was very pleasant inside and the guards on each level/room were very personalble too! The rest of the staff was quite helpful also!

We enjoyed an extensive exhibit of works by Paul Cezanne recently. The art was displayed well and an accompanying audio tour provided interesting information about the history and background of the piece. Additionally, a bonus exhibit titled "Make a Joyful Noise" displayed 3 large marble panel sculptures from the Cathedral of Florence Choir Loft, a large carved lecture, and 4... More
