Met the bus at the Currier Museum, and it took 5 minutes for us to get to the house. It is a typical Usonian example, set in a small but beautiful garden. The condition is pristine and totally original. We have visited many Wright houses, and this is not the most overwhelming or impressive. But if you love Wright, it's... More

This is my seventh FLW building and while not as magnificent in scale as Fallingwater it was for our group one of the most emotionally engaging and inspiring. The Currier Museum have applied museum standards to the way you interact with the house and you are constantly reminded you are walking in a work of art. The conservators have done... More

We were in NH for a wedding and came to Manchester. I purchased tickets online before we came via the Currier Museum who owns the house. No kids under 7 period. No touching. Great docents. Truly shows the genius of Frank Lloyd Wright in every inch of the house. Original owners gave the house and an endowment to the museum... More

Visited with a group of friends after reading "Loving Frank". Reservations and tickets are done through the Currier Museum and a small bus takes you to the Zimmerman House at your appointed time. There is also a "drive by" of another nearby Lloyd Wright house. The staff was very knowledgeable about the house and architecture and also share anecdotal information... More

We are dedicated fans of Frank Lloyd Wright and were thrilled with the opportunity to tour a house that he designed. The tour guide had so much information and lots of insight into Frank Lloyd Wright and the house. We highly recommend this tour.

This house is a superlative piece of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture. The docents are most knowledgeable as to architecture, FLW's theory and philosophy and present all most entertainingly. Plan your visit for early December when live music is performed within...charming. Reservations must be booked through the Currier Museum

First, you need to reserve in advance for a visit. Second, it's a must see. Both guides were knowledgeable and showed their passion for this house. They explained everything in detail and made the 90 minutes visit pass so fast by entertaining you with questions. From outside, this house seems small, but the living room gives it a sence of...
