Good quality museum with nice artwork. It's not very large and can view the exhibits in a couple hours.

We have been to the Currier many years ago and returned recently to tour the Franklin Lloyd Wright house. The tour included admission to the museum. One of the visiting exhibits was on the history of the guitar. We thought it would be a quick walk-through and that we would have limited interest. Surprise, we spent an hour on this one exhibit. The variety of art suits many tastes. Parking is ample and the grounds are lovely. The gift shop is above average.

This was my first visit to the Currier Museum. Funny, as a NH resident, I'm surprised to not have found this wonderful gem until now. We went primarily for the Shaker exhibit. It did not disappoint. There was so much information and so much to learn about the Shakers and their impact on the local community. The artifacts were fantastic! I would definitely allow a few hours to work your way through the museum. It is very well laid out; they give you an easy to follow map so you can kind of "check off" what your've seen or prioritize your interests. It was eclectic in that they offer Contemporary art, European, Early American. They have a great Normal Rockwell room on The Four Freedoms which included a unique modern-day spin. Definitely check out their web site for further info; too much to mention in a review. You can make your way through the museum on your own, using headphones are via a tour. It was posted there was a 1:00pm tour, but when we got there, there was no docent available. Slight disappointment, as had I known, I wouldn't have scheduled our day around it. We plan to come back in the Spring when we can visit the Frank Lloyd Wright house. We were told that the museum recently acquired a second FLW house, to be added to the tour, which is very exciting! I think the Currier would be a really good visit for older school-age and above children. Not so much for little ones. Helpful staff. The cafe was nice and affordable (soups, salads, sandwiches) Cafe staff very pleasant. The museum store was excellent. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to shop. We will next time though!

A very nice mix of American and European art here, both contemporary and classic. Good emphasis on local, regional art and crafts, too. We were here during the Shaker exhibition of articles and furniture from Canterbury and Enfield, NH. Great stuff!
