My husband and I spent a very enjoyable afternoon in this unique museum. It is located in what used to be an adobe home. 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.

Millicent Rogers lived a short but full and varied life, and this museum displays her jewelry and fashion designs, along with a wide and well-explained collection of Southwestern and Hispanic art. No, she didn't own it all and never lived here, but MRM has acquired a broad array of interesting pieces. One room displays Native American and Mexican blankets chronologically... More

There is a little of everything here and it is displayed well. I fell in love with her jewelry display, unbelievable. We visited late in the afternoon. The only downside was it was quite warm & stuffy inside. Try visiting earlier in the day.

Well, it's a few miles west of Taos, but this is one of the most impressive museums in the Taos area. Millicent Rogers lived an interesting, exotic life. With subsequent donations from her family and others, this museum has some of the best historic Indian pottery, rugs, and jewelry in New Mexico. It has about a dozen rooms and everything... More

Wonderful museum with diverse displays. Millicent's story is interesting- she was indeed glamorous. We enjoyed the pottery displays, particularly the Maria Martinez area and the black on black pottery (check the display where they describe how the pots are fired). Millicent's jewelry was impressive- lifestyles of the rich. My favorite was the Harvey displays (Harvey girls and hotels)- Fred Harvey... More

An eclectic mix of old and new. Very interesting and unusual for a museum. Nothing else to say to fill the required 50 characters.

Millicent moved from Hollywood to Taos when her romance with Clark Gable ended. She set about collecting most everything of interest and value in the area--unbelievable assortment of everything Indian, relics and whatever she liked--money no object and times were such she could acquire almost anything she wanted.

The Millicent Rogers museum was establish in 1956 by her family in her memory and to showcase the arts and culture of the southwest that played an important part in Millicent’s life. Her three sons were the leading forces in the establishment of the museum. Her son, Paul-Peralta-Ramos, devoted much of his life in building the collection of more than... More

The collection of artworks within this historic adobe were the gift of Millicent Roger's son. The house itself is not the residence of Millicent Rogers, a NY socialite who removed herself from the City to follow her passion in the burgeoning art colony of Taos New Mexico in the early years of the century. Wonderful collection of Native American (mostly... More
