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.

Expected much more from this Museum. I recommend second thoughts before you go here. It was hard to navigate and the exhibits were a jumble of everything. If you're looking for a good Museum of Art go to Cleveland Ohio or New Orleans Louisiana.

I've been a member of the High for 10 years and would say that they have really stepped up in the last 4-5 years with additions to the permanent collection, great rotating exhibits, and exhibits/activities for young children. No matter your preferences you will find art of great interest

in 2016, we saw a wonderful exhibit and checked for our annual business trip to ATL this year ... nothing special now, but very much worth checking and including in your itinerary if possible.

What a wonderful surprise for all those visiting Atlanta. The high museum is doable well before you get bored and definitely check out the Swan House with its 'actors'. The exhibits are topical and interactive. Good for the whole family and junior can definitely touch things. Would also recommend getting there early and checking out the resturnt for its chili.

The variety of styles represented in the High was impressive and intriguing. The building itself is gorgeous and there is just so much to see! Do bring your personal camera to snap pictures of any pieces you want to be sure to remember (just don't use flash)! Also wear comfy shoes and have a sweater as its quite chilly inside.... More

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!
