Such a great museum! Millicent Rogers was a collector of so many fine things: pottery, baskets, rugs, and art, especially paintings of the Taos Pueblo. And her jewelry collection was fabulous and extensive. A highlight for me.

The jewelry and art are awesome. I have wanted to see this museum for the last few years after I read a book about her. But, the museum is not in her house. Reportedly, her oldest son still lives there, but another couple donated this house for her museum. Still, this is a must see in Taos!

So glad we toured this gem! It offers an amazing private collection highlighting some of New Mexicos best works. The turquoise collection is extensive and there are many impressive paintings Native weaving and pottery pieces. The Maria Martinez pottery and other ceramics of the region was perhaps most impressive to us. Plan on 1-2 hours.

This a very intimate museum where you can view one persons collection. It is beautifully laid out and the audio tour is excellent.

We wanted to see the Fred Harvey exhibit before it closes on January 31, 2015. The exhibit included many items from both Fred Harvey's personal estate and from the company that bore his name. The story of how his vision for a string of restaurants and hotels along the railroad from Kansas City, through New Mexico, to California is described... More

This is a wonderful treasure of a museum. The silver and turquoise jewelry owned by Ms. Rogers is truly amazing. The work is outstanding. One of the other amazing exhibits is the collection of religious art. I loved seeing the work of Maria Martinez, an outstanding and gifted potter whose work is sought-after and beautiful.
