Sadly when we stopped by the Museum was closed, however there are still quite a few amazing pieces outside for you to still take in even if the doors are locked and you can't get in.

When spent several hours visiting the High Museum on a Saturday. The layout is modern, open and airy. The permanent collection is extensive and first-rate. We greatly enjoyed the special Andy Warhol exhibit.

As the other reviewer mentioned, there is a cafe within the HIgh, but there are also numerous restaurants in walking distance along Peachtree Road.
