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 High Museum houses some fantastic art collections, definitely worth checking out for their own merit. In addition, the architecture of the buildings/wings that comprise the High Museum are gorgeous and unique!
