Currier Museum now open with free passes

The Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, NH is open again after almost two years of being closed for expansion and renovations. They now feature an expanded gallery space allowing the exhibit of 60% more of their art collection, visitor lockers, a "Winter Garden" cafe, and a 180 seat auditorium.

Free parking is available in the museum lot on Prospect Street with additional on-street parking on all sides of the museum. Handicapped-accessible parking spaces are available in the museum lot. Accessible drop off and pick up is located in front of the museum entrance.

The library offers a pass which allows 4 adults in for free, while children 18 and under are always admitted free as standard museum policy. Patrons may obtain the pass up to 1 week in advance of their visit either by phone or in person at the Main Desk. More information on the new Currier Museum is available from their website at

The library has a number of other free and discount admission passes available to area museums, including the New England Aquarium, Museum of Fine Arts and Museum of Science in Boston, the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA, the Seacoast Science Center in Rye, and the New Hampshire Historical Society.

We would like to express our deep appreciation to the Friends of the Lane Memorial Library, who purchase these passes each year and make them available to Hampton residents. For more information, or to schedule a pass, call us at 926-3368.
