The Currier Museum of Art is an internationally renowned art museum located in Manchester, New Hampshire. The Currier features 13,000 European and American works of art ranging from the Renaissance to current day, including paintings, decorative arts, furniture, glass, ceramics, photographs and sculpture. The collection includes works by Picasso, Monet, O'Keeffe, Wyeth, and LeWitt with exhibitions, tours, and programs year-round. The Currier Museum Art Center offers studio workshops and classes for children and adults.
The museum also offers tours of the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Isadore J. and Lucille Zimmerman House (1950)—reservations required. The house was designed by one of the world’s greatest modern architects, Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959). Wright designed the house, the interiors, all the furniture, the gardens, and even the mailbox. In 1979 the building was listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Dr. and Mrs. Zimmerman left the property to the Currier in 1988. In 1990 the house and grounds were opened so that visitors could enjoy glimpses of a private world from the 1950s and 1960s, including the Zimmermans’ personal collection of modern art, pottery, and sculpture. Many people believe that the Zimmerman House is a total work of art. The only Wright home open to the public in New England, it is also one of only a few Wright buildings owned and operated by an art museum.
