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.

If ART museums are a standard by which you judge a city, then Atlanta scores pretty low. This is the highlight, and it has a few nice pieces here and there - but mostly its a vast disappointment. I don't even understand how they managed to get a few of the collaboration they did in previous years, but in general... More

Some interesting exhibits featuring southern artists we had never seen. Very few works from famous painters that I am used to seeing in museums. A couple of monets, no Picasso, no Cezanne. A decent way to spend the afternoon, but does not compare to Philadelphia or Detroit.

The High is a gem--though modest compared to other capital city museums across the country, it has an outstanding collection and strives to be an integral part of the community. The calendar of events is packed in an effort to make art accessible to everyone in Atlanta, and the exhibit turnover is fast enough to keep members and others coming... More

The art museum dropped their admission price by $5 to $14.50 in October, 2016 making this a good deal considering their collection is small compared to major metropolitan art museums. The galleries are large with some space devoted entirely to up and coming local artists. The museum consists of two separate adjacent buildings, both of modern architecture. We took a... More

Definitely worth checking out. They also have Jazz on the First Friday evenings of each month. Check the website for current exhibitions.

The monthly Jazz event is a great time to see some great art and enjoy some music at the same time. One the best in atlanta

They have a pretty good collection of paintings. Worth a visit. The physical layout of the museum is questionable - it’s mazelike and possible to miss things.

I am a former member of the high and I used to visit it quite frequently. They are constantly changing out the exhibits and have good speakers!

Check before you go for what is their highlight of the month. We love art museums and this would definitely be in our top 3 in the USA.
