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.

The museum is gorgeous, with white walls and stairs that let the art speak for itself, and the permanent exhibition itself makes a visit to the High Museum worth it.

The High Museum is a wonderful place to visit. Their recent exhibit displaying various arts and crafts from Africa was quite intriguing. It made for rather an enjoyable afternoon.

Several interesting exhibits are...More
