Very good gallery. Had an interesting exhibition and collection. Great store with a wide range of interesting items. Great furniture and American paintings. Well worth the stop.

Just has a great day with my boys, 7 and 12 at the Museum - lots of fun family actives and things to do. Staff was so helpful and kind, food was fun in the Winter Garden. Great way to escape the heat or rain.

Beautiful museum. Adds great value to New Hampshire’s arts and culture scene. Went more than twice to visit it in my 6 month stay in Concord. Great Café, free wifi, great to spend time and enjoy the beautiful collection (Calder, Monet, Picasso!), fun events, the Zimmerman House and the Bearden exhibition that I had the chance to see! Just loved... More

We are so lucky to have this little gem here in Manchester. In addition to the impressive exhibitions, I have enjoyed some of the special events they are now offering. On the first Thursday of the month, the museum is open late and there is music, food/drink samples and fun activities. In June, I had the chance to try beer... More

The museum is nice from the first step, but a couple staffs open at the welcome door asked me to put my backpack away, with a NASTY LOOK. I don't know why but they are not friendly at all; I don't bother to ask. They look very serious. I have to ask them that I need a potty seat for... More

Lots of paintings, sculptures, other art items, great history. My teenager son and preteen daughter who loves to paint and draw both really enjoyed the whole museum. My husband and I especially enjoyed the section of Beardon's A Black Odyssey. Lots of clips and skits of the book, nicely coordinated letterings on the wall nearby the paintings. This particular section... More

Last minute road trip to the Currier did not disappoint. The museum has a little bit of everything for the art enthusiast. The collections are the perfect size to spend a few hours and keep your interest peaked. The New England works were especially enjoyable and fun to recognize local landmarks and home towns. Impressively for such a small museum... More

The Carrier Museum of Art is a great size for a morning or afternoon, and they have a lovely area for lunch so it is perfect for an outing with a friend or family. The art on display is a small part of their collection but represents a wide range and includes many gems; there is work by Picasso, Calder,... More
