High Museum of Art Atlanta

The High Museum of Art, Atlanta’s stunning temple of visual treats, is hard to miss. First, the building is built of white porcelain tile, and inside are four floors of galleries strung together by semicircular pedestrian ramps surrounding a sun-filled four-story atrium.

And that’s just the building. The High Museum of Art collection itself holds more than 11,000 works of art, including a stellar collection of American art, which includes fascinating works from the turn of the 20th century, plus contemporary pieces from the likes of Gerhard Richter and folk art from Georgia treasure Howard Finster. You can also see a marvelous collection of Italian paintings and sculptures from the 14th through the 18th centuries, as well as paintings by French Impressionists and German Expressionists. The collections of sub-Saharan African art and works by noted 19th and 20th century American and European photographers are also world-class.

The collection at the High Museum of Art rotates throughout the year, so each time you visit, you’ll see something you haven’t see before. The museum also hosts traveling exhibitions, concerts, lectures, workshops, and other events.

Practical Info

Be sure to stop in at the museum’s gift shop, which is filled with books, prints, and art-related gifts. The museum’s restaurant is also worth stopping in for lunch or dinner.

Instead of a topic-specific tour such as a food tour or a neighborhood or shopping tour, we've created an experience that is less likely to leave you feeling as though you've missed something. We want you to feel like you've really experienced real life in Atlanta and understand why the city looks and functions as it does. That is why we have included a little bit of everything in our outing with you. Can't wait to show you!
