Though I've lived in New England for many, many years, I visited the Currier Museum of Art only recently--and I'm glad that I did. The collection is small, but quite diverse, with European and American paintings from most periods, including some contemporary works. I especially enjoyed the New Hampshire art and the American decorative art. The furniture, most of it crafted in New England, is magnificent! There are also some beautiful Tiffany pieces.

When I visited, there were two special exhibits. One, "Turning Wood into Art," had beautiful and unusual wooden objects. The signage was quite informative and added to my understanding and enjoyment. This exhibit closes at the end of September 2009, so get there fast if this appeals to you!

We took the public tour of the museum. It focused on highlights in each of the museums collections. Though it was clear that the guide wanted to be helpful and share her enthusiasm, I found her somewhat off-putting in tone and approach to discussing the pieces. I don't want to discourage others from taking the tour--maybe it was just me. However, if other reviewers have similar experiences (and share them), we may have identified a theme that will help future visitors decide how best to spend their time at the museum.

In sum, this is a lovely, small museum. Its size is a plus in my opinion because it's manageable and not overwhelming. Those interested more in local history than art may nonetheless find the museum interesting for its American paintings and decorative art.

The Currier Museum of Art is bigger, better, and more diverse.The 33,000 square-foot addition, increases the museum’s footprint to nearly 90,000 square feet. Visitors to the Currier see 2 new works that were selected specifically. Upon arrival, they will be greeted by Origins, a 35-foot high sculpture by Mark di Suvero that stands in the outdoor court. Inside the Winter Garden visitors see a colorful wall drawing commissioned by the Currier from Sol LeWitt to reflect the mosaics from the original 1929 facade. Then there is the collection of European and American paintings, decorative arts, photographs and sculpture.

The artwork includes both American and European art. There are paintings, sculptures, and furniture pieces. There are pieces from many time periods. Even someone who isn't into art museums would find some enjoyment.

The museum is closed for the next 18 months. Call before you go! Was upset to find the place closed.

Have been before but one warning, the women that works at the Frank Lloyd Wright house is not so friendly and is definately pushy but that is for when they finally reopen.

Hello...while this response comes quite a long time after your post, it goes without saying that we are fully open now and the additions to the Museum are a vast improvement, allowing us to show more special exhibitions and more objects in our permanent collection. We hope you come back to the Currier to see the changes, if you haven't already!
