This is a great collection of New Mexican art including pottery, weaving and wood carving. The number of items on display was a bit overwhelming; could use a little more curating and there were a fair number of typos in the descriptions which is a little off putting in a museum of this caliber. Nevertheless, an interesting afternoon, especially the... More

Pretty building, some lovely art but, all in all, nothing to go out of the way for. My 12 year old granddaughter and husband did not find the visit at all interesting. I found it a pleasant enough trip but was expecting much more.

I think their website recommends budgeting about an hour for your visit, but I believe we spent more like 2, and I could have stayed longer if I hadn't been tired from hiking.

From guide book, I expected a small, dusty museum packed with odd things. Not sure why. Its really a large, modern, well designed museum with plenty of descriptions, character, comprehensive collection of all things Spanish, Indian: pottery, jewelry, clothing, religious, folk, modern art, and I loved learning about Millicent Rogers. Hollywood glamour meets Southwest charm, before it got too kitschy.

Number one sight for most people with a celebrity name at the entrance and some interesting local art but it was not all that special for me. See and make up your own mind.

A very interesting perspective on the glamour years in Taos. Interesting art, fun gift shop and in the home of some the rich kids that used season names as verbs.

This is a must see if you are in the area. The museum was not crowded and well laid out for a pleasant experience viewing a high quality collection of native art and jewelry. It is located away from the crowded downtown area just before you get to El Prado, just north of Taos.
