Must See!

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

This house is worth a visit. It's well managed and well maintained by the Currier Museum. Since most of his work was in the midwest and west, we are fortunate to have 2 examples of Frank Lloyd Wrights work on 1 street in Manchester NH

Although Frank was never on sight, the house and all its furniture was designed by him. It is amazing. Do not miss this experience, especially if you are a fan.

Our tour guide was EXTREMELY knowledgeable about Frank Lloyd Wright's life, his work, the couple who commissioned this house etc. It was extremely informative - a little known jewel in the Queen City. Make sure to arrive early at the museum and get your tickets ahead of time. They transport you and will give you a short history of manchester... More

The Zimmerman House was a great sight to see. Roger, our tour guide, was very informative. It was neat to see the home as it was originally designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. This is worth checking out if you're a fan of the work of Frank Lloyd Wright. It was very cold when I went and part of the tour... More

The docents here are well-trained and knowledgeable about FLW and his amazing work. The tour is really more of an "experience" because you get to learn the ins and the outs of the space in a smaller, more intimate tour provided by the Curriee Museum. This has shot to the top of my favorite FLW structures!

This was our first Frank Lloyd Wright house. If you are at all interested in history, design or architecture then this is a must see. I won't go on about Frank Lloyd Wright, apart from saying that the guy was an architectural and design genius, and that this house must be seen. The tour meets at the Currier Museum, which... More

But could he design a house! The ;house is worth a long visit, and is a unique example of Wright's philosophy of design. It is incredible to me that the fabrics Wright used are still in extraordinary condition. Admittedly, the ceilings are a little low, but as I say, Wright was short. But a short genius!
