Located in Midtown Atlanta, the High Museum of Art is a leading art museum in the Southeastern United States. With more than 13,000 pieces of art, this place has an extensive anthology of 19th and 20th-century American and decorative art: holdings of European paintings, a growing collection of African American art and collections of modern and contemporary art.
Ranked as the 95th among world art museums, it offers special exhibitions, educational programs, event facilities and a museum shop where you can find souvenirs and pieces of art. There are also free tours every day at 1 pm that will allow you to learn more about art and ask all the questions you have. As far as events, there are many options like Toddler Thursdays, Conversation Pieces, Curator Talk and much more. Based on your interests, you can plan your visit!
The museum's growth has been rapidly due its expansion and its exclusive selection of artwork. Highlights of the collection include works by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, Claude Monet, Martin Johnson Heade, Dorothea Lange, Clarence John Laughlin, and Chuck Close. Since the museum is divided into sections and the size is very big, it will take you a full day to explore around. Remember that they are open from Tuesday to Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm. And if you don't know where to start, make sure to download the map from their website or ask at the lobby for one. It will be very useful during your visit.
