Currier Museum of Art

Today’s Currier Museum of Art was established in 1915 as the Currier Gallery of Art. Hannah Currier (1829-1915) and her husband and former New Hampshire Governor Moody Currier (1806-1898) were not art collectors, but left an endowment to build a facility and purchase art to establish an art museum in Manchester, NH. The museum opened its doors October 9, 1929 as an Italian palazzo-style building, designed by Edward Tilton of New York and situated on the site of the Currier’s former home east of downtown Manchester. The building is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

In the late 1930s, the Currier annexed an adjoining property to house the Currier Art Center for studio art classes. In 1988, the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home of Isadore and Lucille Zimmerman was bequeathed to the Currier, along with its complete collections. The 1950 home is located two miles from the museum in Manchester’s North End. The Zimmerman House was opened for public tours operated by the Currier in 1990, making it the largest object in the museum’s collection. In 2008, the Currier completed a $21.4 million expansion to increase exhibition space and make the museum more engaging and accesssible for public programs, educational activities and events.
