The jewelry and pottery collections are some of the best in the Southwest! And don't miss the gift shop before you leave. This is also some of the best quality shopping in town with very knowledgeable staff.

Millicent Rogers was a well bred woman with good looks, good taste, talent and guts, oh and some money to back it all up. This is an awesome and authentic collection of native american,regional art and history- especially the silver and turquoise jewellery along with the black-on-black Maria Martinez pottery. Ms. Rogers was a collector with a cultivated aesthetic sense.... More

Millicent Rogers was a fascinating woman. I loved the collection of her jewelry (she "invented" the New Mexico look) and the in depth look at New Mexico santos, retablos and furniture. The museum is located in a private residential area and was a private residence.

But, some exhibits have been expanded, there is a new audio tour, and exhibits have been rearranged. So, even though this was my third visit in the past two years, the Museum felt fresh and new. The gift shop is also... More

This is a great collection - especially the silver and turquoise jewellery and the black-on-black Maria Martinez pottery. Millicent Rogers was clearly an admirable women and collector with an exceptional aesthetic sense. The piece of writing in a letter to her son shortly before she died is worth seeking out and very moving and powerful. The gallery is beautiful architecturally... More

I AM a fan of the Native American culture and history but one of the other reasons I had to stop into this museum is that it shared the same name as my aunt. I wanted to see who THIS Millicent Rogers was. This museum did not disappoint. In fact, it was quite extensive. There were many rooms devoted to... More

We fell in love with Taos when we visited the Millicent Rogers Museum. Her collection of native american jewelry, pottery, and blankets is truly astounding. The displays are well done, the staff is helpful, and we will return.

This collection something to behold….Indian pottery of all kinds, amazing southwestern jewelry, baskets, rugs, wood furniture and carvings, not to mention the southwest iconography. It was laid out very nicely; with time to take in all at a leisurely pace.
