We love spending Saturday mornings looking at the wonderful European and American paintings as well as the New England antique furniture. Traveling collections rival those of the bigger museums. Great gift shop, too! The Frank Lloyd Wright house can be visited with a museum booking. It, too, is a gem!

Currier Museum along with the Frank Lloyd Wright home are two outstanding destination for any trip to Manchester. The museum has a number of great permanent collection, and quite often brings in some wonderful art from around the world.

On a Sunday afternoon with time to kill, I dropped in here and was delighted by what I found -- really fine examples of early American furniture and paintings by American and European standouts. The collection won't rival what you'd find in NYC or other great art cities, but the holdings shown were all very good examples of their style... More

Not as small as you think and I don't know how they have done it, but there are some tremendously important pieces of art in this museum. Really Awesome place to spend an afternoon.

We enjoyed the collection at the Currier -- nice galleries with some important artists. We enjoyed the glass collection and a display of Robert Indiana's work. The building itself is interesting. It didn't take too long to see all that there was to see, but we definitely found it to be worth the visit!

This mid-sized art museum with about 12,000 works of art has excellent permanent collections that include European, American, Modern, Contemporary, and Decorative Art. Most important artists are represented. In some cases, the Currier may have only one piece by a particular artist, but that one piece is very characteristic of what that artist is all about---from that artist’s typical subjects... More

A wonderful small museum with some unusual gems and fascinating special exhibits which are impressive, but not overwhelming. Try a docent lead tour, attend classes or just take your time meandering. In a residential neighborhood with parking and excellent lunch facilities.

We want to the Currier and had a great day. You can take your time with all the Exhibits. There are people in every room if you have questions. You can approach them.If not they leave you alone to enjoy it on your own. Lunch was very relaxing and exceptionally good.
