This was our first stop in Taos, and I'm so glad that we had lots of time to explore here! This is a fantastic museum. It is in the former home of a local family, and the museum takes great care to tell you what the rooms originally were and what they contained. The pottery exhibit, with its clear description...

Millicent Rogers had deep pockets and bought whatever she fancied back in the early 1900s. Unusual collection of paintings, sculpture, jewelry, santos and bultos that represent well the Northern New Mexico artistic tradition. Wander the warren of galleries and enjoy views of Taos mountains, setting is spectacular north of downtown and close to Taos Pueblo.

I was not aware of Millicent Rogers but when I left the museum I will not forget her. The jewelry was outstanding, what a beautiful collection. There was so much more to the museum than what I expected. The native art and pottery gives you such a feel for the area. My husband enjoyed it as well.

My wife wanted to see the Indian pottery and Rogers jewelery collection. I didn't, but once we go in I was amazed at the wonderful collection of both the pottery and silver jewelry.

One of the best collections of Southwest art we have seen. Displayed by category with text cards which are well written, a trip through the museum gives a great understanding of the eras and styles of New Mexico art. On the day we were here, an event closed two galleries. No problem. The permanent collection is worth the price of... More

This museum is so much more than we expected. First, do not follow your GPS. It will take you to the outback. We finally had to call the museum to get directions, so call ahead or study the directions on the website before you go. Plan on spending some time there, because there is a lot to see. It is...

Millicent Rogers was a talented lady with a great eye for collecting and for style and design. This very fine museum houses her own jewelry designs but also her collection of Native American jewelry. That is not all. The history of Pueblo pottery design is told and on display here. A wonderful collection of Maria Martinez pottery holds a special... More
