We had time to see American art and furniture. They have some really nice pieces of traditional american furniture and non-traditional early American furniture. The art was mostly by artists who were either born or lived in the New England states.

We went for the Escher Exhibit, which was outstanding, but came away impressed with the permanent collection as well. Nice courtyard and gift shop also. We will be back to visit the Frank Lloyd Wright Zimmerman house

The Currier has an excellent and well displayed permanent collection. They have frequent special exhibits that are extremely varied in nature . They bring in exhibits that the larger museums would not normally present, so there's a really interesting eclectic nature to these. This makes frequent visits to the museum a necessity if you're in the area.

We also enjoyed a relaxing snack lunch here. Free car parking and an interesting small shop. Well worth a visit as there are... More

I recently visited the Currier as part of an event sponsored by a charitable organization. They allowed enough time for my friend and I to really see most of the offerings. Usually I just go for a featured exhibit. I had forgotten how many exquisite items they have on display in the rest of the museum. We darted about, uncovering... More

This museum is stunning and very visitor friendly. The painters represented are first class artists. The galleries are spacious and the labeling very informative. We limited ourselves to the first floor and plan to return. There is a nice cafe and gift shop, as well as tours of the Zimmerman House by Frank lloyd Wright.

The Currier is a staple of any trip I make to Manchester. Most recently, I went for the Black Odyssey exhibit, which was excellent.

We enjoyed our recent visit to this tidy art museum. The permanent collection covers survey of western art from pre-renaissance to modern art. There's a little from several periods and includes some notable artists including at least one Picasso. The recent temporary exhibit on Romare Bearden's view of the Odyssey was really well done... see it before it is gone.... More

The Currier is a wonderful compact museum with a very nice variety of art work. Easily doable in a few hours, it does not overwhelm you with either volume of scope. Probably the best sight to visit in Manchester.
