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.

Our hotel stay included ticket to the museum. The 1700 to 1800 exhibits were great. Any other exhibit was not amusing and African exhibit was stuck down stairs with a doctor Seuss wanna be exhibit. It was something to do and we took plenty of pictures.

A decent museum with an impressive collection of outsider art. Be sure to see the Finster collection on the top floor. I found the rest of the collection quite average.

You will come too, if you love your art. By far the best Atlanta has to offer in terms of art throughout the year ! Their special collections and travelling exhibitions are worth what you would show in other more renowned museums. Plus the High has a very interesting architecture that is as cool as its inviting (there's a lay... More

This is an OK museum, when compared to others nationally and internationally. I've seen better. But it's what is available in Atlanta. The current Habsburg exhibit is very good and worth the trip. The standing collection has little that is notable, just a few examples each of American Art, European Art, Modern Art, Folk Art. Admission fee was high (Adult... More

We were in town visiting family and went to the museum to see a Hapsburg exhibit. To our pleasant surprise, the first weekend each month is free for Bank of America customer, of which we took advantage. Highly recommend. They have a very good European and American painting section.

Visiting the High on November 12, my wife & I thought that two of the exhibits were among their best ever: "Habsburg Splendor" & "Iris van Herpen: Transforming Fashion." Both were beautifully mounted & visually stunning. The Habsburg exhibit included many pieces that had never before been seen outside Europe, displayed in thematic rooms that flowed gracefully into one another.... More

The best part of this museum is the collection of regional "visionary" or self-taught artists, most notably Howard Finster. The rest of the collection is mostly uninspired, and not particularly noteworthy.

A beautiful building in the middle of downtown (or midtown, I don't get the difference), with a beautiful variety of art. I especially appreciated the exhibits for kids, plus the playroom—great way to get kids involved in art.
