The Currier Museum of Art is an art museum in Manchester, New Hampshire. It features European and American paintings, decorative arts, photographs and sculpture.
The museum, originally known as the Currier Gallery of Art, was founded in 1929 from a bequest of former New Hampshire Governor Moody Currier and his third wife, Hannah Slade Currier. In 1982, new pavilions, designed by the New York firm Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer, were built to accommodate the museum's growing collections, programs and staff. The Currier Art Center, home to art activities for all ages, was relocated to the adjacent former Women's Aid Home in 1998.

In September 2002, the Gallery changed its name to the Currier Museum of Art, because, in the words of its then-director, it "recognizes the Currier's true mission and clarifies our function for those less familiar with us."

The museum closed in June 2006 for the duration of expansion. The construction took 21 months, and the museum reopened to the public as scheduled on March 30, 2008.
