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.

We liked the art work - both English and American - old and new. We were happy to have gone to see this museum. The furniture was an unexpected pleasure to view. The antique furniture was beautiful. We also liked the modern HDMI display. We were not able to go to see the Frank Lloyd Wright house and felt that... More

Hello Rhonda, Thanks for visiting the Currier and for providing your feedback on TripAdvisor! I wanted to let you know that the $20 admission fee to see the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Zimmerman House actually includes Museum admission, so as you can guess, it's a pretty good deal. That said, I can understand how seeing both the Museum and the Zimmerman... More

Hi Cathy, Thanks so much for the TripAdvisor comments. I'm happy to say that our next exhibition, "M.C. Escher: Reality and Illusion," will have tons of family-oriented activities. In fact, our Art Center will offer all sorts of classes for kids through adults. If you live in the area, check them out at http://www.currier.org/art-center/programs/. Click on the images of the...

Just has a great day with my boys, 7 and 12 at the Museum - lots of fun family actives and things to do. Staff was so helpful and kind, food was fun in the Winter Garden. Great way to escape the heat or rain.

Beautiful museum. Adds great value to New Hampshire’s arts and culture scene. Went more than twice to visit it in my 6 month stay in Concord. Great Café, free wifi, great to spend time and enjoy the beautiful collection (Calder, Monet, Picasso!), fun events, the Zimmerman House and the Bearden exhibition that I had the chance to see! Just loved... More

We are so lucky to have this little gem here in Manchester. In addition to the impressive exhibitions, I have enjoyed some of the special events they are now offering. On the first Thursday of the month, the museum is open late and there is music, food/drink samples and fun activities. In June, I had the chance to try beer... More
