Great tour through the Currier Museum! Tour includes transportation and an inside and outside tour of the house. Tour guide was knowledgeable and approachable--he used all the time we had to deliver tons of information on FLW, owners, and the house itself. I found the whole thing interesting and well worth the time and expense. Though I have no regrets... More

This was recommended to me by my hosts.....I'm so glad I took them up on their suggestion. The house is amazing, and the docents (tour guides) were - as always in America - knowledgable,, witty, and friendly. You won't need to be an architecture or Frank Lloyd Wright fan to appreciate this house, or the stories behind it. Simply marvellous.... More

Took taxi there especially. Then was told I couldn't come in because it was through the Museum tours were organised. So I found myself stuck in a residential area and no means out until a lovely local lady gave me a ride down the road. DON'T GO UNDER YOUR OWN STEAM

curriermuseum, Director of PR and Marketing at Zimmerman House, responded to this review

Hello Susan: I'm sorry you didn't get to see the Zimmerman House on your own. Because it is essentially a work of art in our Museum collection, we have to protect it for future generations. That means limiting access to our two daily tours (which leave from the Museum), eight months out of the year. Tickets are available online or... More

Met the bus at the Currier Museum, and it took 5 minutes for us to get to the house. It is a typical Usonian example, set in a small but beautiful garden. The condition is pristine and totally original. We have visited many Wright houses, and this is not the most overwhelming or impressive. But if you love Wright, it's... More

This is my seventh FLW building and while not as magnificent in scale as Fallingwater it was for our group one of the most emotionally engaging and inspiring. The Currier Museum have applied museum standards to the way you interact with the house and you are constantly reminded you are walking in a work of art. The conservators have done... More

We were in NH for a wedding and came to Manchester. I purchased tickets online before we came via the Currier Museum who owns the house. No kids under 7 period. No touching. Great docents. Truly shows the genius of Frank Lloyd Wright in every inch of the house. Original owners gave the house and an endowment to the museum... More

Visited with a group of friends after reading "Loving Frank". Reservations and tickets are done through the Currier Museum and a small bus takes you to the Zimmerman House at your appointed time. There is also a "drive by" of another nearby Lloyd Wright house. The staff was very knowledgeable about the house and architecture and also share anecdotal information... More

We are dedicated fans of Frank Lloyd Wright and were thrilled with the opportunity to tour a house that he designed. The tour guide had so much information and lots of insight into Frank Lloyd Wright and the house. We highly recommend this tour.
