Currier Museum of Art

Reviewed By PhDRN

The contextual components explaining Saint Gaudens work both visually and through interpretive signage were fabulous. The full bust studies of Shaw and some of the soldiers were worth the visit alone- if you, like I, love the Bronze relief of Shaw and the 52nd Massachusetts Regiment, this section of the exhibit is worth the visit alone.

Visitors are able to get close to the exhibited sculptures and examine the stunning work. Plaster casts juxtaposed with bronze castings allows for some comparison of the intricacies of the work. Sketches, scale drawings with measurements, and a displayed sculpted wood/metal, and semi precious stone panel from JJ Astor's home also illustrates the depth of Saint Gauden's abilities.

Letters to Saint Gaudens from President Theodore Roosevelt are fascinating and funny.

Saint Gauden's Historical Site in Cornish NH is one of our favorite places- the bronze relief of the 52nd Regiment there and in Boston always makes me weep- and we have seen a lot of Saint Gauden's work in context (i.e. NYC) so we could have been bored. Not at all....The Currier's display is a not to be missed exhibit.

Quiant theater with an IMAX. As with a majority of movie theaters, the concessions are ridiculously priced. Tickets were decently priced; they even had military discount. I didn't view there IMAX screen, but the normal screened rooms were sufficient.

Red River Theatres

Reviewed By GraceMarieGMC - NH

We've been to Red River Theatres a few times now and have not been disappointed. The movies screened are both independent films and first run movies. The staff is friendly, and the seats are comfortable. Prices are reasonable, and there is fresh popcorn, etc. - including wine and beer. The only drawback is the lobby; when the place is crowded, it's a free for all.

Very well maintained services at Bear Brook, including marked trails up the hill (with benches at strategic locations), picnic area with grills, fields, pond with boating and swimming, restrooms and a store with snacks and gear.

It was a nice stop for a quick hike when we were looking for something to do between breakfast and lunch.

Reviewed By Nate080411 - Nashua, New Hampshire

I recently visited this brewery on a Saturday afternoon and found it to be a nice little spot. It is just about a year old so it is still growing and getting going. The 5 beers that were on tap were pretty good so I took some home. The service was very delightful. We were able to chat it up with the owners and have a real nice conversation while we sampled our beers. I would say if you are in the area and can swing by it is worth a try!

New Hampshire State House

The oldest state capitol building in the United States.

Reviewed By Robert S - Lawrence, Kansas

We took the self guided tour. The tour brochure was very well organized. The New Hampshire government is a little different. The House has 400 members - largest in the world. Their chamber looks like a college auditorium - each Rep represents about 3,000 citizens. The Senate is more standard. That chamber has a set of nice murals. Another NH difference is that there is no Lieutenant Governor, but rather, has a Executive Council that meets with the governor throughout the year.
A lady in the Governor's office gave us a mini-tour and history lesson about that area.
We enjoyed or visit a lot.

Palace Theatre

Reviewed By donfisher12 - Nashville, Tennessee

We have seen several plays and shows at the palace Theatre this past year. The theater has a rich history, modeled after the palace theater in NYC. This turn of the century theater has the old time charm and is fully renovated. The architecture is amazing, sound and lighting is great and the seats are comfortable for a 2 hour show. There are concessions and drinks available. Only draw back is one restroom each for men and women, so the lines can get long. Great place to see theater, I highly recommend this place to see a play, dance or show at! Great mix of talented acts are scheduled each month. Tickets usually run around $40-$50 per seat.

This place is definitely worth a visit if you've got young children and the price is not to be beaten: $12 per child with adults free. My granddaughter had a wonderful time and thoroughly exhausted her parents (while I watched). Bring a friend for your child if you can; they'll have a great time together.

We've seen a number of concerts and plays here over the years and it gets better every time. The facility has some of the old charm, but updated as needed. comfortable sitting and most seats have a good view. Add in the Concord charm and restaurants on Main Street and it's a great night out...

Livingston Park

Reviewed By Tricia B - Manchester, New Hampshire

Good place to go walking. Fairly even area all the way around the pond. Both my senior mother and young grandchild enjoy going. There are bench placed around the pond in case you need to rest. Or if you just want to watch the ducks in the water. There is a play ground for all ages of children. There is also bathrooms. I grew up ice skating on the pond in the winter. Also brought my children when they were young to enjoy that past time also.
