5 Things to Know About the High Museum of Art
One of the leading art museums in the Southeast is in our hometown, the High Museum of Art houses more than 15,000 works of art! The High has an impressive collection, and is a great fit for kids, with programs and play areas designed just for children.

African, Modern, American and European art grace the rooms, but the Museum also boasts out-of-this-world traveling exhibits. Check with the High for their list of current exhibits. When traveling from gallery to gallery, kids will love walking down the winding ramps in the bright atrium, and mapping out what to see next.

The redesign includes CREATE, a bright and open studio devoted to developing young visitors’ art-making abilities and encouraging the creative process. The newly created space across the hall, EXPERIENCE, is an immersive gallery, which enables visitors to explore what art means, how it feels and where it can take us. Both spaces will include a quiet space with activities designed for reflection as well as an area specifically for infants and toddlers.
Toddler Thursdays are held every Thursday and are included with admission. Each month toddlers and caregivers can explore a new theme, hear storytimes and make an art project to take home. Consider taking a weekend family tour each Sat. and Sun. 2-3 p.m., these are free with admission and give your family a chance to experience the Museum with a docent leading the way.
