Woodruff Arts Center - Review
One of the most unusual art institutions in the country, this art center's origin lies in tragedy. In 1962, an airplane carrying the leaders of Atlanta’s Art and Civic community crashed. In their memory Atlanta built a Memorial Art Center that soon came to house three more institutions - Atlanta College of Art, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and the High Museum of Art.
1970 saw the addition of the Alliance Theatre, and 2005, the Young Audiences. Such a coming together under one roof has never again been replicated. Altogether, the place offers over 3300 performances over the course of every year! It’s the heart of soul of Atlanta’s arts community. Orchestra, pop, ballet – the variety of the art here in no way compromises the quality of each; the experience is almost always magic.
Beautiful grounds, a grand building, a friendly and professional staff – no event here is ever a waste of money, nor is the food. It’s almost impossible to cover everything in a single visit.

Woodruff Arts Center, Atlanta Reviews
What a beautiful complex. The Alliance theater is located next to the High Museum of Art and the Atlanta Symphony Hall. This was our first experience going inside the Alliance Theater. The theater is very intimate with comfortable seats. Love the boosters for the children! Parking was easy to locate with one quick drive around. Can't wait to come back.
Parking lot is easy to get to and signage is pretty good around the area. The area itself is open, clean, and well decorated. It has nice places to chill outside on a beautiful day. I've personally only been to the High Museum of Art here but I assume the other stuff is just as good. Parking can be a little expensive, especially on weekends but there's a lot to do here. If you stay long enough it's worth it.
This place is awesome! Saw Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Beth Hart. Great show! The only complaint I have are the tiny restrooms on the first floor. But go upstairs and you'll find larger restrooms with no lines.
Beautiful space, comfy seating, clean restrooms, friendly staff, easy access to MARTA, but the audio was ABYSMAL! I was in the 5th row of a comedy show and no one in my area could hear the talent. We paid for VIP and would have been better off in the balcony.
This was our first visit. Only 2 exhibits were open & the lady at the desk provide no direction for where to go after purchasing our tickets. We didn't realize until later that the other exhibit was outdoors. I would like to come back however, I feel the desk staff should inquire about is it a first visit. She did ask us to sign up as a member. I am not a local residence to visit that often.
