This place ranks in the same 'small individual museum' genre I would put the Morgan in NYC, Isabella Stewart in Boston or Wallace Collection in London. The variety and curation of the eclectic art collection is to be highly commended with a very strong selection of American and international artists whether lesser known or 'big names'. The current exhibitions on... More

Gal pals went for the day. It was wonderful. All the exhibits were exciting and beautiful. Would absolutely recommend and hope to get back after these exhibits change.

This museum has an excellent permanent collection and wonderful temporary exhibits. The Zimmerman House, the only Frank Lloyd Wright house in New England open to the public, is a must see. There is an excellent cafe and gift shop.

Company coming? Or, just want an activity for a staycation? This is a delightful and well curated collection of art from around the world. The American art room is thoughtfully set up. This venue offers additional excursions to one of an American architect home. There is a small menu in a large relaxing atrium to enjoy a snack. Offering free... More

The building is a mixture of an old core surrounded by modern additions that blend into a coherent and interesting whole. The space inside has some small, intimate rooms and large, airy ones for the range of exhibits on display. You won't find an overwhelming collection of old masters (see Boston's MFA) but some fine examples of lesser known artists... More

We were suddenly without plans one weekend and decided to go to the Currier. What a nice surprise and great exhibition. And it has parking and is easy to get to. We will be back.

Fabulous place to visit for a few hours. Special exhibits are consistently impressive and educational. The little cafe is a great place for a little break and occasionally special events are hosted there, such as the second Sunday Jazz Brunch. Nice gift shop with high quality art supplies. We've enjoyed visiting once or twice a year from the time that... More

While Boston may be stuffed to the gills with arts and culture, it is rare to find a museum as comprehensive and impressive as the Currier in a state like NH. We are lucky to have it! Be sure to check it out.

I've noticed the sign for the museum for years along RT 93, but never had time to stop. At first I thought it was Currier & Ives and my reaction, who would want to see a museum of those cards. Finally, made plans to visit after checking it out on line. What a wonderful surprise. It is a relatively small... More

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).
