  • Grand arrangement of large rooms, in several buildings. We went to see the Eric Carl exhibit. He illustrated a number of excellent children's books. We then saw a lot of other great exhibits, African ...  read more »
  • Atlanta's only can go to the Art Museum. In other cities too small as a downer in the non-re special exhibits are if you go when it comes with a nice advantage slowly.

  • Many years ago, we went as a family on a free family Saturday. Since then, we've been there dozens of times with and without traveling exhibits. The permanent collection is solid with many classic and...  read more »
  • We loved our visit to the High! It was packed on the Sunday we went (which is wonderful that it's so well-used), and we're reciprocal members with another southeastern museum, so we were able to get in for less money. Both the special exhibits and the permanent collection were wonderful and incredibly interesting. We'll definitely be back again!
  • I came here to shoot photography. It was great! The musuem is beautiful and the artwork is amazing to see and very creative. I didn't get a chance to see everything so I have to make more trips back to get the full experience but I enjoyed it!
  • I'm not usually an art museum person but was staying nearby and decided to visit. Glad I did. They have some very unique and creative pieces. Fun place to check out if you have the time.
  • I really like that museum. I visited that place every month to see the new exhibitions. The brilliant one I have attended was "Habsburg Splendor: Masterpieces from Vienna's Imperial Collections" .
  • I love art museums. This one if very nice. I enjoyed a lot of the art that was there, the building is beautiful. People are friendly. The exhibits are well lit and the rooms are well... very roomy. The collection was nice, but I felt as though there was too much furniture. While I do believe furniture is art and some belongs there, I found that they had too much. Also, I hope to see the collection of fine art pieces grow. There is lots of space in the museum for additional pieces. Each room as I stated was very roomy. While nice, I would rather see more art on the walls. That being said, I look forward to seeing other traveling exhibits here. In this trip we saw the "Girl with a Pearl Earring" by Johannes Vermeer. The other Dutch pieces were outstanding as well... Including three Rembrandts... He was such a genius when it came to capturing light and shadows. Fantastic exhibit, if you are in and around Atlanta stop by and check it out before it is gone. All in all this is a fine museum.
