  • 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!
  • Love the sculptures. Building is beautiful and the set up is nice
  • 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 a major art buff and happened to have been staying in Atlanta at the time and HAD to check it out. I took a few photos and showed them to my friends in the U.K. and most of them are dying for me to take them the next time I go. If you are visiting Atlanta, this place, the world of Coca Cola, and the Georgia Aquarium are a must.
  • 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.
