  • A great small museum with a wide selection of art and some surprising masterpieces on hand. They do a lot of rotating exhibits on different interesting subjects, for example a collection of paintings and old photos of Mt. Washington and the White Mts. wilderness from the 17 and 18 hundreds.
  • Cute downtown area to walk around and check out the Currier Museum of Art. The museum has some beautiful paintings, glass, pottery and American antique furniture. Great 2 hour tour for $20.
  • A small but enjoyable art museum focusing mostly on American and Western paintings. They have a mixture from medieval to modern and some great displays.
  • This place isn't huge but there's a really high density of great art.
  • Decent small art museum, usually has some type of timed exhibit to keep things fresh, offers tours of a local Frank Lloyd Wright home
