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.

“FABULOUS”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

This place is really huge and you can wander for hours through the many exhibits. The curator of the African American Museum is awesome and extremely knowledgeable. I will go back for some of the antique furnishings I missed on the last visit!

“Field trip with 4th grade”
Reviewed 30 March 2012

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!
