Great museum to visit. You would not think a small city such as Manchester would have this type of art to offer. If you are a art lover a must see.

I visited the Currier Museum and was impressed with the architectural details from the former entryway that has now been enclosed. They added on the Winter Gardens dining area when they closed off the original entry way, which now feels like the back of the museum. Take a look at the detailed grand mosaics that soar upward and are now... More

The Currier Museum is a must-see stop in Manchester, NH, very accessible from Route 93. It is a handsome building architecturally. The permanent exhibits are first rate and the special exhibits equally so. We recently spent time seeing the current Audubon exhibit which was extensive.

A friend and myself had a wonderful time exploring the Currier. We arrived around 1:30, had a delicious lunch in the Winter Garden and toured the museum for several hours. We used passes from our local library and found street parking adjacent to the museum. The staff was very friendly (I'm sure knowledgable too, but we didn't ask any questions).... More

The Currier is a classically beautiful museum inside. There is an amazing collection of European, American, modern, contemporary and decorative art. If you take a tour the docents are very knowledgeable. The Currier has some great exhibitions. We enjoyed seeing "From Homer to Hopper" and "Audubon's Great Last Adventure". The museum also owns the only Frank Lloyd Wright designed home... More

I visited yesterday with my husband for the first time. I was very pleasantly surprised. The museum has a surprising collection of the masters. I was very excited to be face-to-face with a Picasso amongst others. Worth the trip.

People don't realize what a great gem of a museum we have in Manchester! One of the great things is that there is a tour guide that can lead tours in French! With a beautiful array of French art, having a tour in French is a wonderful compliment! Tip: go to the boutique!! They have some very cool things for... More

Currier Museum of Art has some wonderful paintings - some of my favorite American paintings were by Bierstadt, Church, Cropsey, Tarbell and Hassam. European art was also well represented (just some examples: Jan Gossart, Pablo Picasso, William Zorach). I loved their exhibition "Audubon's Great Last Adventure". Also, as I visited the museum with my two small kids, I was happy... More

The Currier has a relatively small collection but the quality is excellent. they have done and excellent job displaying the collection and allowing close access to the pieces. Overall well done. Allow 1-2 hours.

Set up well and the pieces they had were awesome. Lighting was dim in a few places. Plenty of parking but not well advertised. I would definitely go again, the price is right.
