The Woodruff Arts Center – made up of the High Museum of Art, the Alliance Theatre, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Young Audiences -- is the ultimate destination for arts-loving families. Exquisite paintings and sculpture, inspiring music, humorous and dramatic plays are all within a few steps of one another.
Families don’t have to be long-time season ticket holders or art buffs to enjoy Woodruff. For the budget conscious and for arts novices, Woodruff is a great introduction to the expansive world of culture and creative expression.
The first thing that may come to mind about Woodruff is price. After all, this isn’t like a trip to the dollar movie theater or Chuck E. Cheese, where for $20 and under you can get you cheap food, tokens and tickets.
But there are several affordably priced promotions that make this wonderful campus accessible – and so much more enriching than the dollar-priced alternatives.
Additionally, see if the Atlanta CityPass to the High and other attractions is the right value for your wallet.
