The museum's regular collection is varied enough to be interesting. Watch for special exhibits, which can be exceptional. For New Hampshire residents, check your local library for museum passes, which can make a real difference in affordability for families. The parking lot isn't very large; be prepared to park on-street nearby (no charge).

My second time going to the Currier Museum. Not living in the area, I love seeing all the paintings & sculptures done by regional artists I normally would never get to know.

The Currier has been recognized consistently as one of the best small art museums in the country, and continues to offer astounding variety and quality. It is a must for those visiting Manchester and New Hampshire.

I met my girlfriends at the Currier. This is a cultural gem. We enjoyed the paper exhibit very much. The gift shop is remarkable. There is a Sunday Brunch that looks tantalizing. I had as much fun at the Currier as I had at the Louvre in Paris. Charming museum. Thanks to our docent.

The Currier is a great museum with a very nice selection of fine art. The building is beautiful, as is the gift shop. Don't miss the Zimmerman house tour.

Perfect sized art museum for an afternoon visit. Enough variety and quality to keep you interested and engaged, but not so big you get an art overload coma. High Quality. Great Staff.

Manchester, NH is a fairly small city (a little more than 100,000 people) to have such a high quality art museum. It is especially good for 19th century American art, with several Hudson River school artists (Cole, Church, Crospey, etc.) in the collection. But be forewarned: these are not their major works like you would find in the Boston MFA,... More

My hubby and I were looking for something fun to do on a Saturday morning. Saw other reviews of this museum and decided to check it out. Museum has some very nice exhibits from both European and American artists. The layout of the exhibits is very nice one room flows to the next. Museum is smaller than some but good... More
