Also... you will see some of the beautiful jewelry designs of Millicent Rogers and learn more about her life. My favorite part was... More

We decided to vist the museum on short notice and are glad we did. They have a nice collection of southwest pottery and indian jewelry. We also liked the spanish colonial displays and the exhibit on the Harvey Girls. Well worth a visit.

Very interesting and educational museum for southwest turquoise and pottery. My wife and I both enjoyed it very much. I have never seen so much turquoise jewelry in one place. Well worth the trip.

We were eager to learn about and see the Harvey's exhibit at the Millicent. Very disappointed in the exhibit itself. This was an excellent opportunity to feature items of the era in an historical, economic and social context. The educational opportunity was forsaken for a helter-skelter placement of items that somehow lost the thread of traveling in comfort to the... More

By far the best museum in a Taos . Millicent was a celebrity who collected art and her collection was the basis of the museum . She had a keen eye for collecting Indian art . All types . I recommend use this museum as basis to learn more about Indian art. Great gift shop

So be sides the exhibits, it is interesting to see the inside of what used to to a home. The core of the museum collection are textiles and turquoise jewelry that belonged to Millicent Roger, grand... More

Recommend. As stated in the title, this place has figured out how to concisely communicate about each exhibit/subject/topic in the museum. We learned more because of it. They really mean it when they say self-explanatory.
