The Currier Museum is an excellent place to see an amazing array of art and it's fun and educational for all ages. There's a full day of awesome things to see plus wonderful shops and restaurant when you need to take a break. My favorite part is the museum is clean and cool so I love taking the kids there...

This museum was really very nice. We had free tickets from our local library and it was well worth the trip. Even if we had to pay, it would have been well worth the price. It was nicely laid out, had such beautiful art, was easy to get to and free parking. Clean, neat, friendly. I didn't pay attention to... More

This is a wonderful place to spend a few hours either with your honey, a friend or even for some quiet time! A gem in the city! There are permanent exhibits as well as visiting exhibits. Sure beats driving to Boston for some art culture! There's even a small cafe to grab a bite to eat and take a short... More

The museum has an excellent permanent collection of European and American art that ranges in time from the Renaissance to the present . It also mounts special exhibitions and is currently showing works by John James Audubon. We spent several hours walking through the museum and... More

Just a beautiful venue for a wedding. We enjoyed cocktail hour in the foyer as you walked in the museum. We were able to walk through the entire museum and enjoy the many displays of art work. The dining area was very large and lit perfectly for a romantic setting.

I felt like this museum was just the right size: enough to see a wide variety without being overwhelmed. I only had 1.5 hours and was a bit rushed, so I recommend 2-3 hours. They have modern, contemporary, European, and special exhibits. Mostly 2-D art. My favorite was the European room. If you're in town or are nearby, this is... More

Hi Becky R., Thanks for stopping by during your visit to NH. We generally recommend a 2-3 hour visit, if you want to see the collection with a bit of depth, so thanks for corroborating that. :) The Zimmerman House just rocks, especially if you like mid-century modern architecture and furnishings. Glad you enjoyed your visit to both the Museum... More

The Currier is a wonderful museum - which was a pleasant surprise here in rural NH! We saw the Escher exhibit and were impressed! Many new exhibits arrive annually - must see!

We had booked a tour of Frank Lloyd Wright's Zimmerman House in Manchester and this was the meeting place. We had not researched this museum at all, and we're really surprised by the building and the beautiful and significant collections inside, including a Henri Matisse sculpture and a magnificent Picasso. We spent a lot of time here and would say... More
