The Currier Museum of Art believes in fostering a relationship between the visitor and the works of art in the museum’s collection. Docents and museum educators work to actively engage visitors, encouraging them to describe what they see and think about their reactions, drawing on each visitor’s unique personality and experience.
Assistive listening systems are available for all public and private tours.
Museum Highlights tours are available every day at 1 pm and last approximately 45 minutes. Tours an introduction to special exhibitions. Public tours are free with admission.
