  • A gem of an art museum. Puts on incredible special exhibits and has a good permanent collection. Currier after hours is fun as well!
  • Nice little museum in downtown Manchester. Interesting collection of contemporary artists. Good programs for kids. Sunday brunch on Mother's Day. Frank Lloyd Wright Zimmerman House is also an interesting place to visit (free for members). You will be pleasantly surprised.
  • Great little place. It won't take long to see everything. One whole section is devoted to nh history. We enjoyed the Europe section.
  • It's small enough to enjoy many of the main exhibits, but they are always changing for a new experience!
  • Great place to spend time with others. The atmosphere is quiet, but silence isn't necessary. They had really neat kirigami displays.
