Our main reason for stopping here was for the tour of the 2 Frank Lloyd Wright houses. The tour starts at the Currier, with a bus taking the tour participants to the 2 houses. The art museum is small, but does include some famous works, including Monet, Hopper, Picasso, Matisse. Don’t go with the expectation of visiting major art museums like those in Philadelphia, the Barnes, the National Gallery or the Houston Museum of Fine Arts. Lower your expectations and you will find plenty of great art to enjoy

Disappointed! I went to see their Monet only to find out that it had been placed in storage- despite the fact that it was STILL listed on their website. Other exhibits were ok but I had my heart set on Monet......

The Currier Museum of Art is very small. With the second floor closed on the day I visited, I’d estimate there were fewer than 150 works on display. Highlights include a Picasso, a Warhol silk screen series and renaissance/baroque paintings. There are several temporary special exhibitions, all very small; a gallery or just a few paintings. The collection is in a nice space, but won’t take more than 1-2 hours to view.

The Currier also owns two Frank Lloyd Wright “Usonian” homes that are down the street from the museum that are only available to tour with groups. These two hours tours are longer than you’ll spend in the art museum.

Very nice collection of paintings, sculptures and furniture. Not too large to be overwhelming. Allow 1 - 2 hours. Friendly and helpful staff. Expansive gift shop. Visit and you won’t be disappointed. We were staying nearby at the Ash Street Inn and had complimentary passes.

Lovely experience. A short walk from the Ash Street Inn where we stayed. Loved the paintings by Picasso, Monet, Hopper, Moses, Wyeth and more. Loved the exhibit of historic Islamic rugs. We were glad that the museum requires Covid vaccination and face masks - my wife and I are vulnerable and so glad to be comfortable in the museum's environment. We plan to return this summer to tour the museum's Frank Lloyd Wright homes.

Covid vaccine required to enter. Very disappointing. Who ever runs this museum is clearly brainwashed or just brain dead!

Small museum but interesting art collection. Great for a couple of hours of fine art viewing.

But what is truly exceptional is the tour of two Frank Lloyd Wright houses in Manchester NH. The Zimmerman House is truly special. And the Kalal House is at the very least a fascinating example of a modular design specifically developed for middle class FLW clients. Having these two houses connected to the museum makes it truly worth the trip. Must have reservations to go on the house tour as they only take up to 10 people at a time.

While visiting Manchester we visited the Currier Museum of Art. The staff was friendly and welcoming. There are painting there that you have seen in magazines or on TV. Come here and see it for real. A beautiful beautiful building full of beautiful art.

Compact and beautiful museum house in marble halls and stairs. Pleasant staffer opens the door as you step in from the lobby. We didn't know about the Zimmerman house connection, but enjoyed the Dutch and impressionist paintings, the special exhibit of Middle Eastern rugs, and a nice collection of modern paintings including Georgia O'Keefe. Allow time to visit with a few artworks and get to know them.

Entrance $15 for adults; parking is complimentary.
