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.

Make sure to look at the map they give you once you purchase your ticket. I almost missed the exhibits on the lower level and they ended up being my... More

I enjoy coming here for wine and jazz on Fridays. Better than dinner and a movie. Get dressed up a little and come into the city for a change. Atlanta is a great place to live.

The High Museum has something for everyone. There are a few permanent art installations but the majority of the works rotate in and out very often. The High often has Masters works but they also have new and upcoming artist as well as new and fashion designers. If you have kids they have a play room with art just for... More

A very beautiful museum. The archtecture is worth visiting. The permanent exhibition is very diverse. And every month there are some new interesting nad diverse temporarily exhibitions. Some Fridaynights they have Music at the Museum, which is great to attend, free in combination with a visit at the Museum.

Very cool that there was Frank Lloyd Wright furniture there and some other neat Craftsman style art.

The facility is superb and both the regular and special exhibits are excellent. Even on the weekend it was not crowded at all. It has a nice plaza outside where you can have lunch, a snack or a drink.

I always thought that “High” was a pretentious name for Atlanta’s museum…until I discovered it was named for the High family that in 1926 donated their home to serve as the city’s first art repository. That original structure is long gone, replaced, ultimately, in 1983 by a modern, sculptural, enamel-clad building designed by Richard Meier. It was unique; too bad... More

I have always loved this place. Go on a weekday when the crowds are low. I particularly like the contemporary galleries.

Keep checking and you'll find a source for some of the greatest music America has to offer. Examples would be Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Boz Scaggs, to name just two.
