Exceeded my expectations! There on business, happened to walk by and stopped in. Discounted price as a retired Military Veteran, to boot. No idea what I was getting into, coupled with very limited knowledge on art, I opted for the "guided tour". I must say, Ms. Liz was fantastic. She had me in awe of all the particulars of each...

Took advantage of our town public library passes for general admission; happy to pay for the special exhibit on our weekday visit. Close to our home, so we plan to visit more regularly.

I really enjoyed this museum that exhibits many gems such as Renoir, Degas, Merritt Chase and Parrish. People working there are very helpful and kind. The gift shop has nice souvenirs that are not overpriced. There are even nice books on Frank Lloyd Wright. Of course, a visit to the Zimmerman house is a must (check my specific review).

We stopped by this museum to see the powerful exhibit of James Nachtwey. The overall museum was excellent. A lot to see, but still felt intimate and manageable in size.

For a relatively small museum, the Currier has some amazing collections. I saw a Renoir, a Degas, a Monet, and works by several American painters such as William Merritt Chase and Martin Johnson Heade. There was a lovely collection of glass paperweights which I greatly enjoyed. Of particular interest was a special exhibit of Maxfield Parrish prints. There were also... More

We visited the Currier and Ives Museum at the end of October because admission was included as part of the cost when visiting the Zimmerman house. We originally went to the incorrect address because we had used the schools address. The lady's at the school corrected us and helped us locate the museum only a couple blocks away. Parking at...

The currier is a jewel in the heart of Manchester and a place where people should visit on a regular basis. It is well laid out and has something for everyone.

The setup of this museum puts many others to shame. It is very well lit and has a lot of modern artwork. If you're in the are it's a must see and also check out the Zimmerman House.

Oh what a great place! Airy, spacious with a wonderful collection of art giving a potted history of the medium, with a Picasso thrown in. Loved the American furniture and utensils and the fantastic little courtyard restaurant, so cool on a baking hot day. We took the Zimmerman House Tour with two great docents. Would never live in a dark,... More
