COVID Guidelines

The High Museum of Art’s top priority is the safety of our community, visitors, artists, and staff members.


Masks are no longer required but encouraged for visitors.

Operational Details:

The campus has replaced all HVAC units with HVAC ionization systems, which are proven to reduce the COVID-19 virus.

  • HVAC ionization is more effective than other air-cleaning methods, including UV filtration, which can create ozone.
  • HVAC ionization helps kill other types of viruses, such as the flu, and air pollutants.

We also will continue to offer hand-sanitation stations at elevators throughout our parking garage and in the Museum.

The High Museum has approximately 312,000 square feet of space for visitors to spread out and enjoy seven extraordinary collecting areas and special exhibitions.
