You can find free parking on the street in the surrounding neighborhoods, but the High also has a deck that is very convenient. It's behind the museum (road parallel to P'tree).

It's a museum, how can it be bad? The layout is really kind of confusing and I found my self doubling back several times. Going during the week sounds like a good idea until you're in the middle of a group of unruly high school kids. Oh well. The giant Al...

It seems outrageously pretentious to declare a museum of "high art". Like the curator would seek something else like middle-of-the-road art or insignificant art. Obviously, I'm just kidding because the museum was named after Mrs. Joseph M. High. But it still makes me wonder if Joseph High had a son and named him Joseph. Then they would be Senior High and Junior High. Okay, I'll stop with the bad jokes even though I'm tempted to make a pot smoking reference. Regardless of the quality of the museum, I guess every major city needs to have an art museum to be considered major. Considering that Atlanta is one of the top ten biggest cities in the U.S., I was hoping for a museum to match. Unfortunately, that was no...

GASP. It's true. I just gave the High Museum 2 stars. No, no, I am not an art hater and I'm certainly not a museum hater! In fact, I love art and have always loved art since I was a child. And, if there was an awesome museum or a really awesome football game, um, I'm heading to the museum. Soooo this place is just lame. There's honestly no other way to describe the experience. Oh wait, there are. Here are some synonyms: lackluster, anticlimactic, boring, bland, disappointing, dismal, upsetting... You get the point. It's upsetting because I have been here 2 different times and each time was just extremely, extremely disappointing. The first time was maybe 5-ish years ago and I don't even remember what I saw t...

Went to the Salvador Dali exhibit while in ATL last week. Dali isn't my favorite artist anymore (I think he was when I was a teenager), but this was a very intriguing exhibit.  The art is fascinating.  Great pieces from all over the world including the mammoth Saint James (Santiago) and the famous painting from the Met of the melting clocks.  Lots of photography of Dali and Dali arranging "happenings"  back in the "50s.   The info on his life was super. Dali was buds with Garcia Lorca.    I had forgotten -- if I ever knew -- what a self-promoter and public figure Dali was.  A precursor to Andy Warhol, he was tossed out of the surrealist school for selling out to the man.  (Did they actually had membership ca...

The High Museum has had some great exhibits over the last few years. The Terracotta Warriors, the Louvre, the Allure of the Automobile, DaVinci, Salvador Dali, and now, Titian. When the High's special exhibits get multiple pages of coverage in the New York Times, it is time to admit our little Atlanta museum does play with the big boys. I'm a little perplexed by the negative comments regarding the permanent collection. I've been a member for three years now, and I'm still exploring the Stent Wing and finding new treasures on each return visit. Purchasing a membership is the most economical way to enjoy the High Museum if you plan to visit more than twice a year, and you want to go on a day other than the fre...

Came on National Museum Day so we got free admission, although it was $12 to park in the attached deck.  I've been here many times, although it has been about a year, so we only briefly browsed the permanent collections and spent most of our time in the Salvador Dali exhibit.   LOVED the Dali exhibit.  Huge fan of surrealism in general, and also adore the Dali museum in St. Petersburg, so this was exciting for me.  Took my husband who is not so much an art guy but really loved this exhibit too.  Even took our 1 year old daughter, who slept in her stroller most of the time.  Dali was pretty crowded even though we went when it first opened, which was to be expected.  The other exhibits were virtually empty.  W...

Since it was a beautiful day out yesterday, I decided to get out.  I thought I'd make a trip to The High to see the latest exhibit, The Allure of  the Automobile.   As far as parking is concerned, there's parking across the street, along the street, and the building itself.  I was fortunate enough to find parking along the street.   The price of tickets vary depending on if you're a child, adult, or senior citizen, what county you live in, if you're a member, and if you served in the military.  It's free if you're a member or you live in Fulton County.  At most, tickets cost $18.  If you're a student, it'll cost you $15.   After picking my tickets up from Will Call, it was time to see the exhibit.  It's held...
