Free admission on Second Sundays
On Second Sundays of each month at The High Museum of Art, museum admission is free from noon until 5:00 p.m. Most often there are special activities that are family-friendly and appeal to kids and grownups alike.
The next Second Sunday FREE day is April 12th, 2020
Free admission through the Museums on Us program
That credit or debit card in your wallet just might gain you FREE admission to the High Museum of Art once a month, through the Museums On Us program.
The next free days through Museums on Us are April 4th and 5th, 2019.
The qualifying cards include credit/debit cards from Bank of America, Merrill Lynch, and U.S. Trust.
If you’re a customer of one of these banks, this is a great deal for you! Who wouldn’t want free admission to the High Museum?
This is how it works:
- On the first full weekend of each month, head over to the High Museum.
- Present your qualifying Bank of America or Merrill Lynch credit or debit card, along with a photo ID.
- Receive a free ticket for general admission.
Note that only the cardholder gets a free ticket. If you’re taking your family, regular prices apply to non-cardholders. The program also excludes special events, special exhibitions, and ticketed shows.
Free Teacher Appreciation Days
The next FREE Teacher Appreciation Day is Saturday, February 22, 2020.
Educators are admitted free and may bring one free guest. School ID required.
More for your buck on First Fridays
The popular First Fridays program doesn’t discount admission prices — instead, it adds MORE to what you get for the price of a ticket, to sweeten the deal. This event happens on the first Friday of each month, from 6 to 9 p.m. There is generally a limited cash bar, live music performances, gallery talks, and special activities or workshops that follow a monthly theme.
To see the special programming planned for the current First Friday event, check the High Museum’s Facebook events page.
The High Museum of Art is located at 1280 Peachtree St., in the heart of Atlanta’s busy Midtown area. If you drive, you can park in the attached parking deck, but it is pricey — usually a minimum of $15.
Considering the cost of parking, it often makes sense to take Uber or Lyft to get to the High Museum.
There’s also MARTA. With the Arts Center Station right across the street from the back of the Woodruff Arts Center campus, this is one of the simpler venues to get to on the train.
Directions with MARTA
- Take any red and gold line train to the Arts Center MARTA station.
- Exit the train and follow the signs pointing to Arts Center Way, which requires going up three levels (avoid exiting via West Peachtree Street).
- Once you’ve reached street level, the High is just across the street. You’ll find a stairway and elevator that lead directly to the courtyard.
Note: If you are commuting from the blue or green line, you have to travel to the Five Points MARTA station and transfer to the first northbound train.
