Was not so impressed, and they charge you. I have been to the National Gallery in London, UK and it’s free. The galleria in Washington, DC and it is free. What is wrong with you in Atlanta

This classy, modern facility is in touch with the city and has free days so everyone can bathe in magnificence of the latest masterpieces on display. Always worth a visit. Keep an eye on events and you can turn it into a nice date night.

How can one say no to art and jazz?? Wonderful date night, perfect price point, grown and sexy crowd. We traveled on MARTA it was very convenient and the music was impeccable! We look forward to returning.

Can’t say enough good things about the High! Exhibits are terrific, special events are special and the venue is outstanding. Became a member and the benefits are endless. A must for visitors to ATL.
