The Currier Museum is an interesting small regional museum. The newly refurbished building and parking area fill a full city block. Founded by Moody and Hannah Currier it opened in 1929. It now houses a collection of over 13,000 items. The museum presents samples of its collection in a dozen galleries. They have a wonderful collection of glass objects and paperweights. The modern art collection includes works by Matisse, Picasso, Dove and O’Keeffe. The European Collection contains an impressive Flemish tapestry, with works by John Constable, Henry Rueburn, Claude Monet and a collection of Dutch painters. The second floor has a gallery of colonial home furnishings by New Hampshire furniture makers. There are sculptures by many artists throughout the museum with works by Rodin, Calder, Remington, and Augustus Saint Gaudens.
The Currier Museum of Art is a wonderful small museum with an
interesting collection and the Frank Lloyd Wright, Zimmerman House itself is worth the visit. It would be even a better if some of the staff work on their people skills to make visitors feel more welcomed.
