Owner description: 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.

You can see it all in about 2-3 hours. Unfortunately, the art is not like seeing the great European art museums.

I don't visit a lot of art museums but this is definitely the best one I have been to in the U.S.A. They have several pieces from masters, like Monet for example. They also have visiting collections on a regular basis so things are fresh. If you don't enjoy art you will be bored but if you like art, even a little, check this place out.

The High holds amazing art, but the exhibits it brings in are well worth the visit. The building, which was renovated a few years ago is a work of art on it's own. The High is in an outstanding urban area with plenty of quality restaurants and venues within walking distance.

The High Museum has a very basic permanent collection, but over the past two years has done a great job bringing in world-class art pieces from around the globe, most notably through exchange with the Louvre and the MoMA. definitely worth a visit while in Atlanta depending on the exhibits at the time
