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.

Good layout and decent spread of modern art. The museum was just the right size to represent Atlanta well.

I go to the High every couple months to see the new exhibits and such. The experience is always amazing. Everyone is helpful, the art is excellent, and the labels are clear and well written. The parking and directions to museum entrance from parking deck need to be more identifiable for people who don't know the High.

I can't say enough about "The High." It's something everyone should see for themselves. On occasion, they get collections in for a limited time (Matisse, Van Gogh, Monet) and it's great to take advantage of those exhibits while you can. If you have kids, there are areas designed to engage them & hopefully peak an interest in art. The Fernbank... More

Second Sundays at this museum have great activities for children. I came to the event with my mom, my 11-month-old son, and my 6-year-old cousin. We all had a fun time. There was music for the kids, face painting, and the kids could create their own art showcasing their creativity. They also have plenty of areas where kids can just... More

There are several, easily assessable floors by long ramps or by elevator. The artwork is tastefully displayed. The floors are divided up by period, mostly. I loved seeing the American craftsmanship in the furniture pieces. The contemporary art floor also has an area for folk art.

Even a left-brain person like me can find certain areas of the museum to enjoy. Be ready to immerse yourself into the beautiful world of your right brain.

The 3 1/2 hours we spent in the Wieland Pavilion, Stent Family Wing and the Anne Cox Chamber Wing were extremely well spent! We went through all of the open exhibits from the lower level to the skyway level. All exhibits were well-marked with plaques or informational placards that told the artists' stories and information. We loved the Folk Art... More

We ar members of the High and, b cause I am a self taught artist, ai receive so much inspiration from the exhibits. One of my favorites was a Russian exhibition of paintings that had been hidden away from the general public by Dictator Joseph Stalin.

It is a beautiful place just looking at the architecture was very enjoyable. The art displays were very roomy and not crowed. It is a must see in Atlanta.
