  • I love this museum. Something about the energy of this place. I've been blessed to see some beautiful museums around the world. This one is one of my favorites. They have a cool live music event once a month. Love the diversity in crowds.
  • Mainstage fine art museum. Frank Lloyd Wright like design. Great place to hang out all afternoon. Friday Jazz can be fun if a little too trendy for my taste. Feels like a dating game, hook up event. Well worth the membership for the benefits.
  • Fantastic museum. Rarely can you find a place that can show off such a variety of works with helpful placards and down to earth sensibility. The exhibits themselves get the unique break up of the buildings own amazing architecture that makes exploring the museum itself an amazing joy by itself. Truly a palace of Art collections. A must see for Atlanta visitors.
  • A wonderful place to visit and spend hours looking through all the different pieces of art. From paintings and photography to sculptures and installation pieces, there is something for everyone. Make sure to allocate at least 2 hours to spend wandering the museum. You will want to visit your favorite pieces more than once! They have both a long ramp and elevators for access to all the floors.
  • We had a wonderful time at the High Museum of Art. There were a lot of people there on a Saturday morning, but everyone was respectful and mostly distanced. There is a fair balance of art from different eras and regions. The Persian exhibit, European Art, and the top floor of Modern Art were my personal favorites.
