The Millicent Rogers Museum is indeed a gem as the stunning Standard Oil heiress collected native Southwestern art and jewelry with an impeccable eye for beauty. Millicent Rogers even designed jewelry, and a half-dozen reproductions of crosses and constellation pins are available for purchase in the terrific Museum Shop, a treasure trove of native American jewelry, both vintage and contemporary....

............If you are at all interested in Native American ceramics, jewelry or weavings, this is a must see museum. The collection is extensive and very educating. The artworks are housed in a very well conserved adobe home that is the perfect space to enjoy so many masterpieces........

This museum has an outstanding collection of Native American and Spanish Colonial art and artifacts, including the most extensive collection of pottery by Maria Martinez of San Ildefonso Pueblo. With a collection of 6,000 pieces in its vault, the Museum frequently rotates pieces on display, but some significant collections, such as the Maria Martinez pottery, remain on permanent exhibit.

We had read about Millicent Rogers at our bed and breakfast, so that prepared us for her collections. The jewelry exhibit alone was worth the admission. The Native American collections of everything were superb. Do not miss this museum. The gift shop is excellent as well. It is a good way to spend an hour a little north of town.

The museum is well laid out and easy to work your way around with an exceptional collections of art work, and Millicent's... More

Unusual museum with a private feel to it since this is her private collection. Pots, rugs, and best of all, her jewelry, including her silver buttons. A display shows how buttons were hand hammered. The Fred Harvey exhibit and its tie to this part of the country was a bonus. Knew little about that and it was interesting. Great gift... More

When you visit this wonderful gem, engage staff to learn more about the collection and its history. I couldn't take it all in, so I concentrated on the history, jewelry and and the development of the Fred Harvey railroad enterprise which prompted the Indian crafts. These stories resonated from tidbits I remember from my childhood. I bought the book so... More

Ms. Rogers is known to have been a collector of native artifacts. As best I could make she also did some design and crafting of her own. It is all on display at this museum. Some things were of absolutely no interest to me but I did find most of the jewelery intriguing. Worth a visit if you have not... More

I enjoyed seeing the 5-7 rooms of memorabilia from the early 1900s, when the Harvey restaurants were helping to bring tourists to the West. I had read a book, The Harvey Girls (by Leslie Poling-Kempes), about the waitresses that served in these restaurants and so I was interested to see the exhibit. I got there late, only an hour before... More
