Woodruff often has free events for kids that are just fantastic. The last one we attended had a number of craft stations outside (and a huge mural that all kids contributed to) and inside they had some animated shorts, more crafts, and a few special exhibits. That evening they had a live band. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and we like that the museum makes these things available.

PROS: free days, good stuff for kids
CONS:

Designed by Richard Meier, the High was named one of the 10 best works of American architecture of the 1980s by the American Institute of Architects. The museum houses a growing collection of contemporary art, a wonderful decorative arts section, beautiful 19th Century landscape paintings, five centuries of European painting and sculpture, as well as African masks and ceremonial figures. World-class exhibitions come to the High, which is often the only Southeastern stop on national tours. Past exhibits have included works by Van Gogh, Monet, Picasso, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, Rockwell, Michelangelo and other giants in art history. Don't miss: the woman sitting in the chair exhibit, the Member's Guild at the High and/or the Photography and Folk Art galleries at GA-Pacific.

Hint: On the first Saturday of each month, Fulton County residents receive free admission. Just present your ZIP code and proof of residence at box office between 10am and noon on that Saturday. It's first come, first served, though, so arrive early.

Hint: Avoid the hassle of parking by taking MARTA to the Arts Center station.
