Great mid-size museum - the building is lovely, terrific permanent collection & interesting exhibits. The Frank Lloyd Wright house tour is a real gem - not to be missed (book ahead). Very good cafe on premise, good stop for lunch before or after touring the museum. Docents & staff are excellent.

This is a superb small museum with some significant works including a large Picasso. The Frank Lloyd Wright Zimmerman house forms part of the collection and is a must see. A great light cafe, friendly staff, beautiful building makes for a great day in Manchester

My wife was an art major at UNH. We went there for a saturday lunch & stroll thru the galleries. I was VERY impressed with the depth of the collection & how it was laid out. Can't wait to go back!

Great little museum. Number one reason we went was to see the Zimmerman house, but the museum was a nice surprise! In the collection oils by Maxfield Parrish, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Childe Hassam, along with regional art, contemporary (not My favorite)... a work or two by many artists. A nice surprise when I had no expectations. We did not, unfortunately,... More

If you go at all, go for the solid art collections and exhibits. The first few times I went to this museum, I was with my daughters. Each time, we were stalked by the docents, making it difficult to enjoy the art. This last time, I went with a friend (adult). Friendly front desk staff greeted us and so I... More

Hi Hungrymom2015, I'm so sorry to hear that you felt uncomfortable in your recent visits to the Currier. We appreciate candid, helpful reviews, and yours, while not giving us high marks, will prove helpful. I think you are probably referring to our Security team, rather than the docents. The docents are volunteers who provide tours of the Museum and Zimmerman... More

This small museum is such an asset to the community. We come up from Boston for many of the special exhibits... and the fall 2016 show on Mt Washington was well worth the trip. The museum staff are always welcoming and friendly too. Close to the highway, convenient and easy parking, and a decent cafe. What's not to like?

A great free museum with the opportunity to visit Frank Lloyd Wright's Zimmerman House for an additional fee. Had a fantastic visit to the house, and if you like architecture or like me a fan of Frank Lloyd Wright, a visit to this house is a must.

Enjoyed the visit on a rainy day and was Surprised by the extent of the permanent collection. Good selection of regional glass, furniture and paintings. Lovely mosaics at the old entrance.

First time to this museum and it was wonderful! Beautiful building with a huge mosaic. Not what I expected for a museum in Manchester. I was pleasantly surprised! The exhibit we sent to see was fabulous. 300 hundred years of fashion from around the world. I think about 150 shoes. Very nice cafe with good food and reasonable prices in... More
