  • I've been to the High Museum several times and have never been disappointed. The exhibits are spectacular and I've never felt real crowded during peak times. There's great local jazz on Friday's and y...  more »

  • Huge space housing contemporary and modern art. Local artists are prominent in their permanent and visiting exhibitions. I found the entrance disorienting. One cannot find the way to view the art without assistance, way-finding signs were not easy to see if they were there (we asked a museum staff person walking by). Typical large white walls. Nice public art pieces outside.
  • Went for the free day (Second Sunday) and enjoyed my first time. It’s very straight forward and worth visiting. The main exhibit I wanted to see was Africa. The staff were friendly and it’s easy to navigate. I know they offer many exhibits and events. I would definitely go back... only on the free day.
  • Within Midtown lies one of Atlanta's finest experiences, the High Museum. Every corner of this museum carries it's own story to tell, and each story is captivating. Each time I come, I learn something new, especially every few months after they bring in new exhibits.
  • Lovely place, although I am colour blind. It is a interesting place especially since my girlfriend took me and showed me her artistic side of her life. They change the theme every now and then and it just amazes me what people can make in life.
  • Really nice exhibit particularly for Black History month. Enjoyed going with friends during free admission. Didn't realise Marta is literally across the street. Made it really convenient to not need to worry about parking and driving downtown.
