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.

I met my sister to see the Eric Carle Exhibit. It was great to see so many illustrations from his classics: The very hungry caterpillar, The very clumsy click beetle, The grouchy lady bug, Brown Bear Brown Bear, The Tiny Seed, Mister Sea Horse, etc. The exhibit was in a gallery downstairs. The artwork was hung lower on the wall... More

Love this place! I look forward to the new exhibits. Also the Friday night Jazz sessions are the absolute best! The way the music resounds throughout the facility transports you to another place.

This is a very good place to take visitors to Atlanta. The annual pass is worth it if you live in or around Atlanta.

Amazing range of paintings from all periods. The prime focus on American art made me realise for the first time how distinct it is from what was happening elsewhere - e.g., American Impressionism was very different from what was happening in Europe. A gorgeous African special exhibition too.

It was great to discover this gem which has a broad collection of art spanning from the ancient to the contemporary. The architecture of both buildings is worth seeing and the tours with docents are very good.

The High Museum of Art is a beautiful building housing a fantastic collection of both permanent and rotating exhibits. As a father of two young children, I had the good fortune of visiting while the Eric Carle exhibition was in the museum. Mr. Carle's books are among my children's favorites, so it was a treat to see the original pieces... More

The museum is great... two small cafes in the museum and a nice restaurant across quad. If you are a member, you get discounted parking which is great if you come to shows or the ASO at the Woodruff center...

The statuary and American exhibits were great...But, I am a fan of the American section and of the Contemporary Art..They have four great pieces by Alex Katz that dominate one whole room and contemporary furniture items that I thought were outstanding...
