Every Sunday, from 1-4pm, the Woodruff Arts Center offers free family programming as part of their CREATE series with the Woodruff Arts Center. Now is a great time to go because many of the activities are centered around the art work of children’s author, Eric Carle, in celebration of the Eric Carle exhibit. The family activities are a lot of fun and really creative. At a recent event, my daughter’s made light-up fireflies, caterpillar headbands, and flowerpots-all in the theme of Eric Carle characters. It’s a great way to bring the exhibits to life for kids.



One of my favorite places to go on a Friday night when they do Jazz. Great experience every time and cool exhibits that change regularly so you never have to get bored. Beautiful pieces are featured there regularly and it is right in Downtown Atlanta.

I find the permanent collection in the old wing a bit stale but the rotating exhibits can be quite impressive. The organization does a great job of bringing a great variety of exhibitions so that you'll find something to suit your taste. And the architecture is worth seeing on its own.

Great place for FRIDAY NIGHT JAZZ!

One of my favorite places to go on a Friday night when they do they're Jazz Fridays. We usually meet up with friends here and I love going when they have a new featured artist; I loved the DALI exhibit last fall, they had a really great opening night. Great place for culture!!

High Museum.....???

I was expecting a larger, more varied collection given that Atlanta is a beta-class world city, certainly much larger and wealthier than Norfolk or Richmond which do have reputable fine art museums.

The Museum does bring in interesting exhibits, but between these exhibitions the Museum is underwhelming and shallow.

I asked several staff members questions and they were at a loss to respond. This would have been okay if admission had been $5.00 or so... but the price was $18.00.... so I was expecting a lot at that price and was disappointed.

Right now, I would call the Museum more of a fine arts center with great potential for growth. I was surprised that such an important city as Atlanta has a third rate museum.

If I lived in Atlanta, I would join and support the Museum. Atlanta and the Museum need a better class museum given the city's importance in our nation.

One of the best cultural experiences in ATL

Built in the 80s as an architectural work of art itself, the High maintains a fresh, modern structure that has been considerably stepping up its game. Bringing in collections from the Louvre, works from Di Vinci, Monet, and all the other big boys along with local artists making a splash, the High is a wonderful place to cash in on once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to engage in history and art. With events such as jazz and martini nights, the High is custom tailoring its approach to the modern day clientele. Perhaps the best exhibit I have witnessed was the civil rights photography exhibit - which is what the High excels in: relevance, history, and geography.

Date night at the High

You gotta love it when the museum opens the doors ""after hours"", serves cocktails and has amazing live jazz. Mark the 3rd Friday night on your calendar and grab a date - you will both have a delightful time.
