At first it seems out of the way and unimpressive from the front of the building. But it did not disappoint one bit, so glad I read the TripAdvisor reviews. The museum is excellent. Wonderful diversity in the exhibits from pottery to jewelry to clothing. But the highlight was the commentary that accompanied each exhibit. Thoughtful and thorough and I... More

What a pleasant surprise to wander into this elegant museum. The atmosphere provided a "back in time" experience whereby you felt the era of a time gone by in terms of getting to know a particular person and place. There was an instant romanticism that might otherwise have been missed if you missed this museum.

Should not be missed for a complete view of American Indian culture. The experience was beyond what we expected. I would return.

My husband and I visited this little gem of a museum of jewelry, and other artefacts of Millicent Rogers, the heiress to the Standard Oil fortune. The museum is well worth a visit for those interested in seeing a large collection of beautiful turquoise and silver jewelry, as well as wonderful art of famous artists of the last century who...

As not familiar with this lady, but am now. What a magnificent legacy and priceless woks she left behind for all to enjoy. Wonderful museum. In her former house. Beautiful stuff. Spent several hours there. It was wonderful.

The intriguing history of Standard Oil Heiress, Millicent Rogers, who tired having been there and done that and after a love affair with actor, Clark Gable, that ended badly, discovered the peace and Native American jewelry of New Mexico. A style icon, she created the look of piling on the necklaces, bracelets and belts that came to be iconic. Here... More

This is a wonderful little museum. It is a nice break from everything else Taos has to offer. There is a little bit of this and that and enough to appeal to the whole family.

We enjoyed our visit, particularly seeing the Native American jewelry. I believe that that was the highpoint. The Native American art on display is not as broad as that exhibited at The Wheelwright in Santa Fe or The Heard in Phoenix but is certainly worth seeing

Interesting history lesson. I was not familiar with Millicent Rogers before visiting the museum. Lovely displays of her jewelry collection and beautiful pottery on display. Well worth the time.
