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.

Partners with Louvre, MOMA, etc for finest exhibits of Old Masters to modern painters, but also does shows of cars, jewelty and clothing design. Fine permanent collections of Folk Art, particularly Southern outsider artists, and African art. Patrons groups do exciting behind scenes events. I'm a member over several years.Most recent visit in May.

The High Museum is one of the top 25 Art museums in the world (I've been to most of them), in my opinion. Perfect afternoon, walking around seeing all the exhibits - the temporary exhibits are outstanding - then going to the Atlanta Symphony that evening (part of the High Museum).

I always thought this was a minor museum but the sheer number of sculptures by greats like Hiram Powers, Chauncey Ives, Wetmore Story, Erastus Palmer and Giovanni Benzoni made this an unexpected discovery for me. The painting collection isn't the biggest. There is a decent and representative collection of Renaissance and Baroque works and a larger number of postmodern works,... More

If you like art, this museum has it all. From an astounding collection of modern art and furniture to 14-19 century European art plus ceramics and a family art centre, you'll be amazed! The building itself is beautiful: especially the ramped atrium!

This was a great place to visit, easily accessed by the subway from any area of Atlanta. A great collection of modern and classical art with a place to have coffee too.

A well deserved break from moving and painting in my daughter's new home was an afternoon at the High Museum. She took me especially to enjoy the Vik Muniz and Eric Carle shows. The Muniz show was jaw dropping. His work with 'non-typical' materials to create masterpieces which he photographs then they are destroyed (primarily due to the materials). Wow.... More

Lame permanent exhibits have been there for decades. Every year or so a fabulous new showing the rest are mostly lame, too. The kids' area, while improved, could be better. The building itself is beautiful, lovely lighting, and easy to navigate. Gift shops are nice.
