My 11 year old was a little apprehensive about going but was able to see a view works he liked, and I didn't expect that. He was a bit bored but not completely, I think it was still good for him though. Do not touch the art! My bf forgot this cardinal rule with one of the modern sculptural works... More

This exhibition is well worth a visit, even if you are not a car fanatic. It is so unusual to see a museum going outside the box to display this fascinating display of concept cars. I must say the admission price I believe is a little high when you factor in parking, so I believe they do limit the numbers... More

We really enjoyed the temporary display of amazing cars which is only there until September 2014. Get there if you can. However I'm sure it will be replaced by something equally great. After the cars we started through the rest of the building enjoying the paintings and statues on display until we had to go to dinner. There was so... More

This is an outstanding museum with a wide range of art for all visitors. We went to see Vermeer's Girl with the Pearl Earring, and enjoyed all the fabulous art in this display. Elevators get crowded, but the stairs are too much for us. One outstanding aspect of the museum is lounge chairs in various places where you can sit... More

I loved my first experience at the High! What a lovely experience! I don't think there was anything I didn't like. Make sure to get a snack from the little coffee bar just past the ticket counter. The scones were lovely and the items reasonably priced!

Let me start by saying I LOVE ART MUSEUMS. The High Museum of Art was a great afternoon adventure on a rainy day in Atlanta. We don't live in ATL, so we only had half a day to spend at what ever place we ended up going. I am in the Military and it was great to see that the... More

We went twice trying to see everything. Most Art Museum's I've been to have been short visits but the HIgh Museum has 4 different levels in 4 different quarters of the building. We got lost 2 times trying to find the featured exhibit. There really is something for everyone here in historical variances- a walk through time in art history... More

I was here with three of my family members and a 2 year old and everyone enjoyed themselves. Right now there is a cool exhibit in the courtyard of the museum featuring dozens of red hammocks which you can sit and relax in which can be fun for everyone. The museum has so much to see and do and plenty... More
