  • very nice multilevel layout. Alot of room to take your time looking around. If you are past or present military get in for free with a guest of your own. plan on at least two hours just for looking.  more »
  • 世界で一番展覧会のチケットが買いにくい「草間彌生」秒殺という言葉も使われるようです。Atlantaで見に行くことができるなんて、外すことはできません。High Museumは、このようなチケットも取り扱っていたのです。 It is impossible to remove that you can go to see Yayoi Kusama at Atlanta. It is a big rig...  more »

  • First time in the museum! It was great!!! We had so much fun specially for kids. The pictures, sculptures and all the art pieces were stunning. Everyone was very polite and friendly; always with a smile on their faces when we approached to ask questions. We will definitely go back!!!!
  • Wow, you can walk around here all day. There is something for everyone here all kinds of art ,some I'll say are very old ,and others I'd say must be from the future. Worth checking out , if a picture's worth a thousand words, go see this place it's 3 stories
  • Wonderful to see all the different artists. Impressed by some of the bigger art pieces! Staff was always willing to direct you to the next exhibit area if you’ve never been there before. Know there is a parking deck but its not free. There is a parking area across the street but we didn’t use that so I’m not sure of the cost. We spent 2 hours here and it was $12 for parking. They do offer coat check free of charge.
  • The High is always a good time, I'd suggest going about once a year. The exhibition when I went was a collection of photographs taken of the same place over a series of decades. Great display of the impermanence of everything. The museum is well maintained, lots of staff to help you find things. Kids area to get them engaged, and a lovely outdoor area with larger installations.
  • Great experience! And at fair price ($13,00 more or less). They have different kinds of pieces from american art, and others from worldwide, but most from XVI century and beyond. It also has a beautiful architecture from Richard Meier. It was really worth it!
