Currier Museum of Art

Currier Museum of Art Review

This renowned art museum not only offers an astounding permanent collection of works by European and American masters, such as Claude Monet, Edward Hopper, Winslow Homer, John Marin, Andrew Wyeth, and Childe Hassam, but presents changing exhibits of contemporary works. Also run by the Currier is the nearby Frank Lloyd Wright–designed Zimmerman House, built in 1950. Wright called this sparse, utterly functional living space "Usonian," an invented term used to describe 50 such smaller homes based on his vision to create distinctly American architecture. It's New England's only Frank Lloyd Wright–designed residence open to the public.
