Outside was a bit boring to me, but the inside was beautiful. Visit if you are into art or architecture, or like learning about house design. It's hard to describe the inside... It is just unique. Everything flows together in an open design, and it is decorated very much how it was when the museum acquired the house. The inside... More

We love Frank Lloyd Wrights work, especially the Usonian houses, and this is a wonderful example beautifully curated with all the furnishings and decorative items of the owners, who had the house designed for them by Wright and lived there for 38 years. The tour of the house was wonderful and informative, but there was so much to admire and... More

A quite amazing place. This is the only Frank Lloyd Wright house available to the public in New England. Unique. You have to buy your tickets in advance through the Currier Museum where you board the tour bus. Very knowledgeable docent. The building is beautifully preserved. The grounds are lovely. Worth the trip. Has inspired me to visit other FLW... More

It was good and clean. The bathroom is shared for three rooms within a suit. Free Wi-Fi, no breakfast. Close to Hanover downtown.

Book Club friends spent a delightful afternoon at the Currier but the star was the time spent at the Zimmerman House. It is timeless. Such attention to detail. Our guide had been a neighbor which was a plus.

This is the first Frank Lloyd Wright home I've visited and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It has been meticulously maintained and the docents were friendly and knowledgeable giving plenty of time for questions while still keeping people moving at a good place. Both the architecture and the landscaping were stunning. Well worth the visit.

This house is part of the Courier Museum in Manchester, NH. If you are near here and any kind of a Frank Lloyd Wright fan, this house is a must see. The grounds are spectacular and the house is in excellent condition, being donated to the Museum by Dr. Zimmerman and his wife. If you are anywhere near Boston (about... More

While traveling through Manchester, we had limited time for excursions. However, while not as overwhelming for me as some of these other reviews, I'm still glad we took the time. I really do enjoy FLW buildings, and this one is quite charming. The scale is quite interesting - a lot of design in a small space. The docents were knowledgeable,... More

If you are a Frank Lloyd Wright fan this is a must see! It is an additional free when you go to the Currier Museum but totally worth it.

It's almost as if you are entering a doll house! this Frank Lloyd Wright-designed house was intended to be as beautiful but at the same time minimal as a home could be. It was custom-designed for the owners who gathered musicians to play in an evening, who collected art pottery, and who were willing to keep it simple. So unlike... More
