Two of the state’s leading art galleries are the Hood Museum of Art at Dartmouth College and the Currier Gallery of Art in Manchester. Both have fine permanent collections as well as special periodic exhibitions. Other notable galleries include the Lamont Gallery at Phillips Exeter Academy in Exeter, the Art Gallery at the University of New Hampshire in Durham, and the Thorne-Sagendorph Art Gallery at Keene State College. The museum of the New Hampshire Historical Society houses period rooms and art objects. The League of New Hampshire Craftsmen is a statewide organization that promotes handicrafts through a teaching program as well as through the shops it operates in various parts of the state and the gallery at its headquarters in Concord.

The Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site


The Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site in Cornish features the home, gardens, and studios of the sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens.

The MacDowell Colony


The MacDowell Colony at Peterborough, named for the noted American composer Edward MacDowell, is a special haven for artists in all creative fields. This colony was originally MacDowell’s summer home.

New Hampshire pioneered in the establishment of public libraries. Probably the first free public library in the United States was that established in Peterborough in 1833. In 2004 the state had 231 tax-supported libraries, and free libraries are found in all but a few tiny towns.

State Library


The State Library in Concord provides a variety of support services to local libraries. Each year the libraries circulate an average of 7.6 books for every resident.

Baker Library


The Baker Library at Dartmouth College contains a collection of original manuscripts of works by Robert Burns, Joseph Conrad, Herman Melville, and other distinguished literary figures. In the library are murals by the noted Mexican painter José Clemente Orozco. Other outstanding libraries are the University of New Hampshire Library in Durham and the library of the New Hampshire Historical Society in Concord.
