    Not extensive but still worthwhile...
    The Currier Museum of Art was on our list of attractions in Manchester, but primarily for the purpose of seeing the two Frank Lloyd Wright homes. We clearly had not done our homework because upon entering the museum and purchasing our entry tickets we found out the tours of the Wright homes were sold out and required reservations. Nonetheless, we enjoyed the museum's galleries which were not extensive but still worthwhile.

    A delightful museum ~ worth a visit.
    wMy husband and I chose this as a meeting place for several of us flying in from different spots. What a great decision! A delightful restaurant, delicious soup served in china bowls, lovely helpful staff. And, most important of all, some first rate examples of major 20th century art. Sorry we could not have stayed even longer.

    Two interesting Frank Lloyd Wright Houses.
    We visited the Frank Lloyd Wright Houses that the Currier Museum owns. The tours were conducted by two docents who did a fantastic job. Background information on the original owners, how Frank Lloyd Wright became the architect and how the homes came to be part of the museum. The two houses are very different and provide insight to two of Wright’s designs. I have visited a number of Wright properties and I recommend visiting here. The museum is included in the tour price so you can explore before or after the tour. There is a nice cafe in the museum.

The 2 Frank Lloyd Wright home tours are worth the price of admission. Very informative and friendly guides! They really knew and loved the homes. God Bless the two donors that made it possible to view these 2 unique homes. The museum was nice but a few times it was uncomfortable with the staff hanging over your shoulders. I understand they need to make sure the art is protected and people can and will be disrespectful but some staff members were much better than others doing their jobs without being in your space. Also note If you get a chance, please do try the cafe.

But…….
There was a security guard dressed in a kilt, long hair in a pony tail and heavy work boots. My husband and I (in our late 60’s ) simply wanted to enjoy the art but we felt very uncomfortable as he was literally following us throughout the museum! His heavy boots were so loud and we could feel his presence behind us in every section of the museum
The museum itself was lovely but the “security guard” made us so uncomfortable, we just left.

Lovely experience. A short walk from the Ash Street Inn where we stayed. Loved the paintings by Picasso, Monet, Hopper, Moses, Wyeth and more. Loved the exhibit of historic Islamic rugs. We were glad that the museum requires Covid vaccination and face masks - my wife and I are vulnerable and so glad to be comfortable in the museum's environment. We plan to return this summer to tour the museum's Frank Lloyd Wright homes.

We visited the museum after our Wright house tours. I agree that the museum docents are paranoid and overbearing. I was asked to stand 6 more inches away from the painting I was looking at because maybe my elbows would bang into it. Another one ran over to warn me when I was trying to read some small print on a piece of a new map exhibit that I was closer than 12 inches to it. It was an uncomfortable experience, being followed and watched continuously. It was as if they don’t want people in there near their art. I guess we should have brought binoculars so I could have stood far away from their pieces and still see it. The whole experience was truly unenjoyable.

Our main reason for stopping here was for the tour of the 2 Frank Lloyd Wright houses. The tour starts at the Currier, with a bus taking the tour participants to the 2 houses. The art museum is small, but does include some famous works, including Monet, Hopper, Picasso, Matisse. Don’t go with the expectation of visiting major art museums like those in Philadelphia, the Barnes, the National Gallery or the Houston Museum of Fine Arts. Lower your expectations and you will find plenty of great art to enjoy

Compact and beautiful museum house in marble halls and stairs. Pleasant staffer opens the door as you step in from the lobby. We didn't know about the Zimmerman house connection, but enjoyed the Dutch and impressionist paintings, the special exhibit of Middle Eastern rugs, and a nice collection of modern paintings including Georgia O'Keefe. Allow time to visit with a few artworks and get to know them.

Entrance $15 for adults; parking is complimentary.

The Currier Museum of Art is very small. With the second floor closed on the day I visited, I’d estimate there were fewer than 150 works on display. Highlights include a Picasso, a Warhol silk screen series and renaissance/baroque paintings. There are several temporary special exhibitions, all very small; a gallery or just a few paintings. The collection is in a nice space, but won’t take more than 1-2 hours to view.

The Currier also owns two Frank Lloyd Wright “Usonian” homes that are down the street from the museum that are only available to tour with groups. These two hours tours are longer than you’ll spend in the art museum.

The Currier Museum of Art contains an eclectic collection of Western art, from the 1500s to the 2000s. Works of art are nicely spaced so that a visitor does not have to bump their way through crowds to view the art up close. A leisurely tour through all the galleries takes 2-2.5 hours. There is a cafe on premises that is located in a large, airy space; it has a good menu. The gift shop has a good assortment of books and souvenirs. Our friend who lives in Manchester told us that only 10% of area residents have visited the Currier. If you're in the Manchester area and have a couple of hours to spare, don't be like the 90% of residents who haven't been to the Currier. You'll be glad you visited.
