Named after Moody Currier, a 19th century governor of New Hampshire, the Currier Museum of Art was established by Currier's estate in 1915 and is located in Manchester, New Hampshire. Today, the Museum is a bedrock institution within the Manchester cultural milieu, and their website has materials that will engage both young and old. At the "Exhibitions" area, visitors can read up on their current and past exhibitions, and also catch sample images from each one. Moving on, the "Collections" area allows visitors to view almost 13,000 items from their permanent collection. Visitors can browse the collections by theme (such as "Modern Art" and "Decorative Art") or they can perform a detailed search. Also, their "Secret Life of ART" blog provides a bit of "behind-the-scene" fun as visitors can learn about the curator's favorite pieces and also about what goes on as a new exhibit is going up.
