I took 7 children to the High last year during a Family event they had that a friend gave me tickets to. We all loved it. One would think it wouldn't be easy to keep children interested in the Louvre exhibit, but they high did. They loved walking around looking at fancy stuff from elsewhere. Beautiful things we don't often get to see. They especially enjoyed walking around with headphones listening and trying to follow along with all of the people there. I am glad the High and my friend Caroline helped us have this once in a lifetime experience.

The permanent collections at The High are impressive, especially the modern art, for which they just built a new wing. If that weren't enough, The High always has interesting visiting collections from famous Impressionists to Michelangelo's sketches, to the current visiting exhibit, which comes from an ongoing exchange with the Louvre in Paris. A great (air-conditioned) adventure for a summer day!

A great place to be a member because you get the advance notices on displays. Parking is a hassle but lots near are much easier and the same price. The special presentations, especially the Impressionists are amazing!

The High Museum is lots of fun and has great displays of modern art. However, they alsoget great travling exhibits that have really cool old art. Just last year they had a traveling Louve exhibit that I went to see, and it was fantastic.

The High Museum is a great Art museum. There are all kinds of displays, some permanent, and some that change periodically. There is art from well known artists, as well as lesser known artists.

I've found that The High is a great place to go especially when there is something your interested in. Most times I have gone specifically to see an exhibit of choice and while there have perused other displays with mixed results. The Ansel Adams Exhibit was stunning!

Granted, the High isn't the Met or the MOMA. But it doesn't try to be, and that is incredible. For a relatively small museum, the staff and administartion are always trying to bring in the most amazing exhibitions. Recently, Georgia O'Keefe, The Lourve, and Annie Leibowitz have been incredible. Also the activities for children who aren't always pumped for museums visits are extensive. On weekends, there are often activities where children can create their own art that corresponds to either the permanent collection or the special exhibitions.

I was amazed to see all the paintings that I has seen in my art books in college. seeing actual works of art is indescribable compared to a text book. They have some masterpieces there.
