Owner description: 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.

Always enjoy the programs and exhibits at the High - huge favorite is the Folk Art permanent collection - great example of southern folk art. Jazz evenings are great too.

It was packed with kids, but the docents did an amazing job and the kids had a blast and really learned. I would love to go back on my own so I could really 'see' it!

Not only is the building a work of art, but sculptures, paintings, and artifacts galore will keep you busy for hours.

Always something interesting to see and learn. There is lots of free parking in downtown Atlanta and the entrance price is very reasonable.

The High Museum is the only game in town I you are looking for a major art museum. Like all monopolies, the High has its problems.
The permanent exhibits are all over the map when it comes to styles and periods of art.
However, when the High Museum puts on a traveling exhibit of interest, they do a fantasic job. Currently show in are a bunch of famous modern art pieces, such as Andy Wahol and Picasso. Not my area of interest, but a few years ago the museum displayed about 15 expensive, classic cars that were each works of beauty.
Wait for an exhibit of interest to you and you will feel as though you got your money's worth.
