The Amoskeag Mills, the Currier Museum of Art, and the Anheuser-Busch Merrimack Brewery are Manchester's main attractions.


 

 

You can't miss Manchester's famous, historic red-brick mill buildings (textile factories) along the Merrimack River.

Millyard Museum

The Manchester Historic Association's Millyard Museum, in Amoskeag Mill No. 3 at the corner of Commercial and Pleasant streets (map), covers the entire history of Manchester from the first inhabitants 11,000 years ago to the present day. Exhibits on the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company, the largest textile producer in the world at its prime in the late 1800s, are especially elaborate and interesting.

Also note the workers' tenements uphill from the mills, still used for housing city dwellers.

Currier Museum of Art

The Currier Museum of Art, northeast of the city center at 150 Ash St (map; tel 603-669-6144), is a gem of a museum with an excellent collection of works by Old Masters, New England and New Hampshire artists. Its collections of 19th- and 20th century European and American glass, English and American silver and pewter, and colonial and Early American furniture are outstanding. More...

Budweiser Brewery

Anheuser Busch Merrimack Brewery, 221 Daniel Webster Highway (US Route 3-map; tel 603-595-1202), run by the world's largest brewer of beer, runs tours through its Merrimack facility.

There's a good bit of walking to see the brewery proper and the Clydesdale Hamlet where they keep the magnificent brewery-wagon horses, but at the end, if you're at least 21 years of age, you can sample the company's wares in the Hospitality Room.

To find the brewery, go five miles south from Manchester on Interstate 293 (Everett Turnpike) to Exit 11. The brewery is on US Route 3 in the town of Merrimack (map).
