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.

A friend and I visited this museum on a cold winter day recently. I enjoyed its collection of American painting, furniture, glass, and silver and folk art. The European porcelain was also gorgeous. A lot of floor space is devoted to large scale modern art which I enjoyed less. We ate a delicious lunch just across the courtyard, although limited... More

I visited this art museum with my 2 children. The building's architecture is worth the visit itself. Make sure you take your time looking at every floor. My favorite is the second floor with the European marble statues and paintings. There is a kids area on the first floor as well as children's art classes in the basement. Make sure... More

The High Museum of Art in Atlanta, is the leading art museum in the Southeastern United States. You could spend 2 days here easy working through all the exhibits, and still not see them all, but it is worth your time to see such rich history and art.

I am not an artistic interested person, sometimes my wife convinces me to take a look at art. In this museum I w<as glad I tagged along. It is a very well conceived museum with interesting exposition. The light is so good that the oeuvres attracts your attention. Certainly worth a visit, and take your time, enjoy!

I really loved this museum. It had a great mix of older works and modern works. It was beautifully laid out and well designed for optimal viewing. I will definitely be back to visit again.

Since my last visit to the High several years ago, they have made some good changes. While it is still not at the level of the National Gallery in DC, or the Detroit Institute of Arts, they have really stepped up their game. There are more items in display, although getting from building to building was confusing. We enjoyed the... More

My friends & I spent a lovely Saturday afternoon at this museum. We joined the 1 pm tour and learned quite a bit. We particularly enjoyed the pieces in the permanent exhibitions that were not contemporary (just our preference). The tour guide was very knowledgeable and approachable. The museum is easily walkable and there are elevators. There is also free... More

About two weeks ago the High Museum held an evening community event with art making, drinks, music and a festive art-infused event for the community. What a large, innovative museum that showcases global art of all types! Love how respectful they are of diverse artists. My daughter is a member and so we enjoyed the discount guest price. Well worth... More

A city the size of Atlanta needs better. Oldest European art was 1498. No major artist displayed. No classical, oriental.
