Nice Museum

We spent Saturday morning touring the museum. It is nicely curated and wish we had time to visit the Wright house as well. The staff were friendly and very helpful.

For a 'small' museum, the collection is really quite outstanding. Some 'headliner' artists, but lots of interesting works that are well curated. I really enjoyed some of the regional pieces that reflected the history of Manchester too, along with the contemporary paintings. We arrived when the museum opened and took a hour to see the first floor before we left... More

There is much to love about the Currier. The collection is good, the food at the museum restaurant is good. I love that it is tucked away in the City of Manchester. The Alexander Calder mobile out front is spectacular.

Hi Iris57classic, Thanks for the great review, and I'll pass word along to our Chef that you enjoyed the Winter Garden Café. You are right that we have a Calder mobile, but that's inside in the gallery that exhibits contemporary art. The wonderful sculptures in the front are by Mark di Suvero (Origins) and George Sherwood (Fusion II), and yes,... More

There is a great deal of art, sculptures, and paintings in the Currier to offer everyone something to enjoy. Two floors, European, Modern, and global pieces in well-lit (or muted light, depending on the age of the item). Brunch offerings for special occasions - we were there on Mother's Day, and the entire day was sold out weeks before (while... More

Hi Scott, Sorry you didn't get to partake in our May Jazz Brunch. It's always tough to get a Mother's Day reservation, but calling early is key. We actually serve brunch on the second Sunday of every month, so you can try it out on another visit. Thanks for stopping by and we hope to see you again! More

Manchester, NH has lots to do with a vibrant downtown. The Currier Art Museum was a good place to spend some time. They have a small but good collection. We saw a major Picasso, a Monet, an Andrew Wyeth, and religious art from the Middle Ages. They had a current exhibit on "Graphic Realism" which was very cool and new... More

Having survived Art History in college, it is very surprising to find works at the Currier that I remember from the hours sitting in a dark room watching images. A trip to the Frank Lloyd Wright home is also worth the time and give considerable insight into a great artist.

Hi vrrooom! Sorry we couldn't provide you with a slide show and quiz after your visit. :) Glad you enjoyed your time here and had a chance to visit the Zimmerman House. Stop by again! The great thing about the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Zimmerman House is how it changes with the seasons. More

I thought there was a good selection of not just wall art but also furniture and statues/sculptures. It was not very crowded on a week day which made it more enjoyable. The security staff were awkward to have around. There seemed to by too many of these guys that made me feel as if I was about to do something... More

Great collection. Beautiful building with a nice cafe. I recommend a docent led tour. They will guide you to the history of some of the works. Currently highlighting an exhibit of 1970 photo realism. The sculptures are worth the trip alone. You'll think they're alive.

Was rather bothered by the $11 per adult fee. You can finish the museum in under an hour. They have special exhibits, besides the artwork that stays there. For a small town, I suppose it's impressive, but after seeing the V&A, Met, and Louvre... They have a Picasso, Monet, Calder, but they were certainly not any major pieces...

Hi dotters: Thanks for visiting the Currier. You are right, we aren't the V&A, Louvre or Met, and we never will be. Those institutions all had massive head starts on us, and considerably greater resources poured in from major donors in London, Paris and NYC. That said, we have a wonderful collection of works on view (our Monet painting was... More
