great selection of fine art, modern and historic!

so first things first, if you have a bank of America credit/debit card there is a possibility the museum visit would be free, but it's only valid like 1 day out of a month... read more

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

Hi Lital G: Thanks for the glowing review, and I'm happy to hear that you came up from NJ to visit. As for the Bank of America program, it's called "Museums on Us" and about 150 museums across the country participate, offering free admission the first weekend of each month to people holding BOA credit or debit cards.

I woke up yesterday and wanted to go someplace new and with a little bit of research I found the Currier Museum. It took me under an hour by car from Boston and I spent four hours at the museum. The building is a mix of old and new with an original building and subsequent additions. There is a delightful... More

The Currier is a little gem of a museum. Not only do they have a wonderfully diverse permanent collection, they also have fantastic exhibits. The MC Escher exhibit was comprehensive and very well organized and I am very excited to see the current exhibit, Still Life: 1970's Photorealism. They also have a cozy cafe with very good food, teas and... More

Hi Cynthia A: If you come by to see the Photorealism exhibition, you might also want to check out our Richard Estes show in an adjoining gallery. He was one of the leading lights in photorealistic painting, especially of NYC street scenes. See you soon! More

Took my 14 yr old and several friends. All the girls were interested, asking questions, discussing what they saw afterwards. What a delight! Don't let your kids keep you from it. There was s something for everyone! A great day, some great memories!

A gem of a museum, much larger than you'd expect in a small city like Manchester. Public tour at one pm by highly trained docent--FREE!

I went to the museum with my 1 year old daughter. Super friendly staff. I didn't now have to open a door the whole time. The photorealistic exhibit was amazing. There was no "take home" souvenirs available for this exhibit. Wonderful trip. I would go back if I am ever in the area again.

Thanks for stopping by, Richard W and for bringing your one-year old to the Museum. We kind of think that you can never be too young, or too old, to view art! We hope to see you again. More

Go here all the time. Not only is the art collection superior, but the First Thursday nights are fun. Went there on First Thursday in February for a 70's party. Danced like crazy to all the old songs played by a great DJ. The museum tours are always informative. Also special is the tour of a Frank Lloyd Wright house.

Hi PaulinePinard: Thanks for the thumbs up on our Currier After Hours events. The 70s event you mentioned was pretty memorable--we're still talking about it here in the Museum. Tours of the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Zimmerman House start up again in mid-April and tickets will be on sale starting April 1. More

Hi Diane L: Glad you enjoyed the Escher exhibition. We install new special exhibitions at the Currier roughly every four months (Photorealism and Richard Estes are up now) and we also make changes to our permanent collection fairly frequently, so we hope you stop by again sometime. More
