We went to this museum mostly because it was raining...and I thought she, Millicent, might be the daughter of Roy Rogers. Well, she's not. She was a very gutsy woman who loved art, jewelry, the Southwest, and life. Treat yourself to this small and manageable museum! There is a lot known about the men of the Southwest and not quite...

Because it was so cold, I decided to spend the morning at the Millicent Rogers Museum. Great idea on my part! I would definitely recommend spending the extra $3 to get the audio tour. The commentary really helped me focus on what was in each gallery. I spent about 1 1/2 hours at the museum. I especially enjoyed the jewelry,... More

If you ever wondered what it was like to pull up the home stakes and set off on a permanent trip "out west", and that as an east coast blue blooded debutante, here is the happy and incredibly outfitted result. I love the few native americans who are always on hand and wish it was "legal" for anyone to come... More

This museum is a rich treasure trove of art, history and culture. The exhibits are varied and fascinating. The presentation vis-à-vis lighting, colors and architecture of the building are of the first quality. I cannot say enough how much I enjoyed my time here. It is simply not to be missed.

Millicent Rogers was a wealthy socialite from the effete east who fell in love with Taos and in just six years transformed herself into the epitome of the so-called Taos Style. Millicent collected only approximately one tenth of this museum's total but hers is a sort of anchor and definition for the whole. She collected some fabulous woven rugs and... More

We live nearby, but had never visited - after taking some visitors for what we thought would just be a quick trip to a small museum......were we surprised! Interesting back story - beautiful art work of all kinds. Jewelry lovers - get ready! Can't wait to return.

I had read the rave reviews, but honestly didn't think that a museum of this nature would hold the attention of my young'ish kids. It did. An hour wasn't enough, and we practically had to be escorted out (just kidding) by the museum staff. The jewelry, the clothing, the art, were all gorgeous. The museum is thorough and offers high...

I hadn't been to this museum in a few years and loved it all over again. It's a manageable size -- we spent just under two hours there, including time and purchases in the top-notch quality gift shop. Millicent Rogers was a fascinating woman (Standard Oil heiress) who lived in Taos the last few years of her life (she died... More
