About
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.

OK for a rainy Afternoon
Jun 2021
Very close to the Arts Center Martra Station, just across the street and up a glass elevator. The buildings are beautiful but a close-up look shows it in need maintenance. The art collection is mostly modern art that has mostly no meaning. There is one gallery that holds European art with a few Monets and one Renoir. A few 'not to be missed' pieces that justify the $14.50 admission include the bronze sculpture Minotaurus which is cast in the artist's (Nandipha Mntambo) likeness. Also, the American sculptures and portraits on the third(?) floor are quite beautiful.

The High has grown up at last!
May 2021
I wrote a scathing review a few years ago. I'm delighted to report the Museum has gotten light years better! Not sure if it's new leadership of better curators but the quality of the permanent collection and the temporary exhibitions are appropriate for a city as big and cultural diverse as Atlanta! Great new acquisitions of contemporary art and folk/African American art make this a museum on the rise.

Great place to visit
May 2021 • Friends
Took my mom (91 years old) and really enjoyed nearly all the exhibits. She is from the Netherlands and knew a lot about the European artists. It was a very nice visit. Things in the gift shop were reasonably priced.

Unique Exhibits

Went here in summer of 2019, before all the craziness happened, and it was a lot of fun. Went for a friend's birthday and got to see a lot of unique and cool art!

Unlikely return

Loved the American, European, and Design areas. Persian exhibit was not terribly impressive. The top floor greeted me with a 12 ’ demon and went downhill from there. Who in hell designed the collections?

Architecturally stunning museum
Mar 2021
The High is a very good smallish art museum in an architecturally stunning campus. The open feel of the buildings and good use of natural light lend the exhibits and art work extra appeal. Many American and women artists and decorative arts are represented along with a representative collection of other modern and impressionists.
